That's exactly what I thought when I read the list, so declined
to answer it.

I _hate_ it when someone asks me if the so-called great Linux
they heard about can fill their needs and then that someone
proceeds to spell out their needs as exactly what Microsoft
provides them with.  I just reply that they appear to be married
to MS software, and no, it doesn't run on Linux.  What's the
point?  There will always be a pull-down menu that's different,
and we all know that the MS way will be better.

I continue to do stuff _differently_ on Linux.
