        If you ask me, the UNIX way is better for almost everything when compared to
the DOS/Windows way.  Today the FTP which comes with Windows balked at me for
uploading a file without any '\r's in, claiming it was possibly corrupt!?

        In fact, the only thing UNIX doesn't compare with Windows on is speech
recognition.  Maybe I have just spent more time training the system in Windows
and that's why "Die, Windows, die!" responds 9 times out of 10, spontaneously
rebooting or freezing, when compared with the (albeit never used but for
testing purposes) unreponsive "Die, Linux, die!"...
