I'm going to take a break from lurking to point out that I am not
dissatisfied with Windows. It has its uses, as do Linux (and NetBSD, and
Solaris, and the other operating systems I have installed at home). Frankly,
I don't have a problem with Microsoft. If I don't like their product, I'm
free to choose not to use it.
