I guess I have to forward you all the emails we exchanged internally
only about getting anything working on windows. If I count the emails
targetted only at windows, and those only targetted at all the unix
archs, you will see that windows is the chaotic one ...

You want to have all them to see how brain dead windows is??? I still
have all of them in a mail folder, about 2000+? You want to know how
brain dead windows is?

on w2k, xp, and vista???

Please, go back to real life and don't disturb us with this type of
rubbish. Sorry.
