Call me Windows deprived.  I have always avoided it except to run
a few applications that were not available on Linux, Unix, or OS X
(Drafix CAD, TurboTax, and a day of testing to get certified as a
GTE reseller about 10 years ago).  I went from Burroughs main
frames to Xenix on the Radio Shack Model 16 in 1982, and always
have found DOS/Windows cumbersome and hard to do anything easily.

We maintain that the very foundation of our way of life is what we call
free enterprise, said Cash McCall, but when one of our citizens
show enough free enterprise to pile up a little of that profit, we do
our best to make him feel that he ought to be ashamed of himself.
