I see the trolls have been back while I was on vacation. I'm actually
sorry I missed this thread (no, thank you, that's not an invitation to
send it to me :).
All I'm gonna say is I've got my desktop tweaked out to a point that I
am so comfortable with it that I don't have to think about how to do
something, I just think about it and it happens. And MY desktop will
work exactly the same on any Linux, FreeBSD, and with a little work,
Solaris - probably any other *nix I care to try too.
And these days, I feel like a fish on pluto when I have to screw with
someone's M$ can - totally un-intuitive if you ask me. Funny how the
keyboards are the best thing on the market with the M$ name, but you
can hardly do anything in their UI with it. I hate the mouse. If it
weren't for the browsers, I'd probably never touch the stupid thing (I
know all about lynx, but when you're a web developer, you need to see
what everyone else is seeing - screw IE).
That's enough of my garbage for the troll.
