uhm... sorry for those of us who just deem it that i don't want to use a
graphical user interface... (before i go into a rant)  sometimes i just
don't feel like firing up X, so i just stick with the VC in linux.  the
only way i can do cut and paste is via screen.  what the hell is up with
OS/2 people that they can't just accept the likelihood that their OS isn't
the best in the world?  any it's a matter of interface, and not OS.  via
any unix system you have the options of

	1. using X
	2. using screen
	3. using tintin with the #textin option
