No argument here, that was never my argument. If i had not "givin up' my
CoCo back in '86, due to (no) money for upgrades, and when I was going to
high school, my interests were turned away from the CoCo, I probably too,
would be a Mac user. I am not argueing over UNIX or OS-9. My beef is just
with Linux itself and with the "zelots" out ther. I have no problems with
any other use or versions of Linux. Just because I hate Tempos, does not
mean I hate all Ford cars.
