    Just for your information, Canada did not win the “French Indian” war. It was the British, along with American allys that won that war. Do your homework.

      Gotta love a good history controversy on a Linux podcast! If my facts are right, the “French-Indian” war was part of an ongoing conflict between Britain and France. It lasted from 1756 to 1763, so there was no such thing as an American during the war.

      My comment during the podcast was simply poking fun at the understandable American tendency to glamorize the history of the period… and get in a dig in Canada’s favour. Of course, there was no independent country by that name at the time either!
