Ah, geez. A day doesn't go by lately that someone isn't declaring war
on somebody. :-P
I have Applix on my machine. It installed off their CD in rpm format.
It works fine in Woody. It worked fine on SuSE when I was running
that. In other words, we can all just get along.
Besides, we've already got enough top-posters to be consigned to Hell
before we bite off more problems.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
