I would say that is a very narrow viewpoint given that anyone in this 
field playing with advanced and community developed software has had to 
have come across Winblows in in some capacity somewhere. Anyone willing 
to conjure up methods to avoid Winblows _must_ have a veeerry good 
reason for doing so; and therefore some rather reasonable knowledge of 
that cursed system to a very high level- such as myself.

I fail to see what political bias has to do with this discussion; and by 
stating such you could only unveil your own- and I'll motion that you 
take it elsewhere and not on the list. This is a technical list: not a 
social sciences club.

A lot of people take pot shots at M$, Winblows, and Gates, satirical or 
otherwise; what are you- his best mate? :) I was training for MCSE and 
even the lecturer was having a go at it.

Please end this now, its just unwanted noise.
