Well, guys, I have been reading all the posts on this one, and guess
I have heard everything that has kept us from gaining enough ground in
the computing world:
1.  Most ppl _are_ too busy.
2.  If you don't care about the end-user, then count out just about the
whole market.
3.  Windoze has been here a while, and ppl are used to it.
4.  Most ppl are _stupid_ so they won't ever learn how to configure
somthing cause they think they don't have time.  It is more like they
don't have the patience due to not having the choices that they have
5.  Most ppl, myself not included, don't have the least bit of respect
for developers, and probably never will.

This means, that for us to be successful, we must not give a hoot if
someone asks the same _moronic_ questions over and over.  If we keep
getting steamed about it, we will loose the desire to even make the
stuph.  That is why proprietary sw is made, and that is why the market
is not ready for us yet.  I hate to say any of that, as I am in college
learning to be a sysadmin/programmer.  Given that, I wish all of the
developers and documentors the best!  You guys are the best I have seen
yet at second guessing what dumb questions newbies will ask!
