Re: [OT] Goodbye Debian

actually opera does have tabs (since before firefox) and does have a wand which remembers passwords. Before firefox, i used it as
the best alternate to explorer when I have to use a windows machine. But why not load firefox? If you got opera on, firefox should be doable. If loading is an issue, you could check into portable apps and put firefox and a few other programs onto a flack stick for use with windows machine.

good luck.

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,
