If we are intent to ween people off Micro$h|t, we have to take care of the
"little things". It's hard to sell an alternative, when that alternative barfs
on a simple thing like Floppy-Use.
The "big" stuff is in place already; M$ cpmpatibilitynin WP, Spread-sheets,
mail... etc. is already far better than M$. It is the small crap, liike
Floppy drive use, which makes the "conversion" a problem!
The open-source community have to get their act together, and realize
that main-stream users will gladly switch to FreeBsd/Linux when and ONLY
when all the basics are working.
For a geek, these "problems" are trivial; for a WindowZ idiot, these thjings
are what kills a sale, and maintains Wind0WZ dominance in user-space.
