    Oh this is no joke, I wonder how this will affect OS development. That's probably enough push for me to switch to Atmosphere...

    I realize what they did broke some laws, and I have never been a fan of TX, but it's sad to see these guys have their lives torn apart

    Well sure, by all means. But they have been doing this for a loooooooong time. So it's just catching up to them. After all, this isn't the original Team-Xecuter. Just the one Max bought.

    Yeah I kinda liked Gary. He had a sense of humor.

    I hope at least he doesn't get a long prison sentence. Hope he gets out .... soon. :P
