I think that the majority of Linux machines have bind installed.  I don't 
recall the last time I installed Linux without bind, it would be sometime 
before 1996...

named is more popular than all news servers combined, more popular than 
majordomo or uucp ever were (and they are much less popular now), more 
popular than msql...  These other programs have their accounts in everone's 
/etc/passwd, why not named?

I do not get viruses because I do not use MS software.
If you use Outlook then please do not put my email address in your
address-book so that WHEN you get a virus it won't use my address in the
>From field.
