I really feel sorry for windows users ROFLMAO

Don't start that. I used Linux from the earliest days. (0.94 Kernel and
SLS Linux).  I now use W7 and there is nearly nothing I could do in
Linux that I cannot do in Windows easier. I do use Firefox and
Thunderbird, and OpenOffice, not MS' tools. I don't do servers.

The big problem with Linux is drivers. Drivers are less of a problem
with Windows unless you are trying to make new hardware work with old
Windows versions, or conversely.

What I can't do in Windows is certain kinds of maintenance without
resorting to outside tools.

Note that I was a RABID Linux user.

Nevertheless I am certain you have your excellent reasons for liking
Linux. There is a huge amount in Linux to like. It's more work than I
want to do. So please, don't poke fun at Windows users. Help them.

As I said the few tasks you need to have done for which developers didn't make Open Source (Linux) versions can easily accomplished in in a virtual Windows XP using VMware or VirtualBox. Nuch more stable and no virus nightmares.
