i always thought we were trying to fight high-priced Unixes, not
completely different operating systems. a lot of us are stuck with Win95
as the only way to get certain things done (word processing et al.) and
win95/MSWord is certainly cheaper than any Unix + Framemaker or whatever
else. (okay, maybe the win95 platform isn't as stable, but i'll take a
little instability to save a lot of money :)

let's have a david & goliath thing. linus can be standing with his
slingshot over an AT&T (or Novell, or OSF, or whoever) with a big knot on
his forehead. (personally, though, i say keep the KO'd BSDaemon. i hate
the dumb look always on that thing's face :)
