luckily for some of you people liek me come form the amiga world - linux
is so arcane and wierd with its config fielsa and everyhting its own
syntax - in strange illogical places.... i hope to do my bit in fixing
this... :) i use linux - its flexible and i like that.. but it has a
LONG way to go.. if we sit and gloat in thinking its great... we're
stupid to "rest on our own laurels" even though those laurels arent'
great. what we need to do is acknowledge that we fall a long way short
and in many ways other OS's coem a lot closer in some respects.
