Well, I guess the subject caught your attention after all. Of course I'm not saying goodbye to Debian, at least not voluntarily and certainly not at home. But I just changed jobs, and so moved from a self- administered Debian box to a locked-up, preinstalled all-M$ Dell thing. M$ Office, M$IE, Lotus Notes 6 (soon to be migrated to Outlook Express). I've never really used Windows before and thought of it as just another system -- I like Debian, you like Windows, no sweat. Boy, what a piece of crap. It boggles the mind. This is how the world's office workers get their work done? Or do they? I managed to install Opera in a directory owned by myself, but whenever I try to open any page it keeps asking me for usernames and passwords, which IE somehow seems to inherently know about. That thing doesn't even have tabs or a decent bookmark handler. That's the #1 browser in the world! WTF? Am I missing something here? OK, this rant really doesn't belong in this group, but I need some sympathy right now. Thanks for listening, --D.
