I guess it could have been an excusable mistake if QNX had been
written without any available resources in regards to the crypt()
function, but it's gross stupidity if there's code that works, and is
tested, and available for closed-source software houses to *leech* off
(I'm talking about BSD), and they don't make use of it.
Objection overruled, Mr Cochran! "White Christmas"
does not have any racist overtones!
