...and there we have it. You are talking about 1970s computing as opposed to
now. Actually, even computing from 1990. I had to write reams of configs
just to get on the net back in 1990. Today, I can point and click a Windows
PC on to the net in minutes. What's the difference here? Well, the harder a
thing is, the less the person wants it. MS sells to more because they made
it easier to do a lot of things and of course they made some sound business
decisions early on in the company's life. Whereas YOU can enable whatever
you want because YOU know how, most people in the world cant. So, where
would we be today if we went your way? Less take-up of computers, thus
internet thus jobs.

You know, I would have to say that you cant see past your OWN limitations
therefore it is everyone else's fault by that comment.
