Sheesh, give it a break Eugene. The fact that you can't stand to see
someone say *just one* positive thing about Microsoft makes it look like
you are incapable of an objective view. The vast gulf in perspective
between some of the programmers and the actual users (who pay for the
stuff) astounds me. I'm amazed that all this vitriol is reserved
exclusively for MS and Gates, while Ellison and that hypocritical McNealy
(the self-described libertarian who runs to the politicians rather than
competing) are left alone. What's that all about?

I'll stop before I start a long rant.
