Bravo! I applaud you for not becoming too 'angry' in your reply. I know how hard it is not to. We oldtimers must always remember that a vast majority of Unix/Linux aficianados switched over from microSOFT or other OS's (term used loosely here). I came over from Vax myself! A while back. It remains that some serious users have astetic needs as well as those of functionality. But anyone who actually uses, and I mean really uses an OS, will fast learn the pitfalls of ms windoahs. It is like racing a car with slick tires with holes in them, and a leaky radiator. I still can't call any version of ms windoahs, an OS. The early to mid NTs had a glimmer of promise, momentarily. But that disappeared quickly. The IBM affiliation seamed to add some professionalism. But only some. And XP pro and Home are THE worst of all, I think! Jeeze, they will NEVER come out with a decent piece of software! If you can remember back that far, ms was even able to screw up their first Linux Distro!
I will now again applaud you sir, for an honest, truthful opinion. It is rare indeed to find someone who doesn't spout one party line or another! And give your' software 5 out of 5 stars.And implore you to continue including solid functionality as well as everything else.
