Denis, Do not value "popular" or "easy" too much. Humans have a long standing history of choosing immediate gratification over more difficult options that would be in their best interest. A fitting example for this month would be the use of Microsoft Outlook, with continues to facilitate the spread of computer worms and viruses. The world has known this for some time; and yet, it is still very popular. When people justify using Windows, you will note that market share and ease of use are usually listed first. When people justify the use of FreeBSD, they tend to focus on the operating system's strengths -- not the users' weaknesses. It's a different frame of mind. We're not an exclusive bunch; but we expect you to respect your own intelligence. (To other list members: Is that a fair statement?)
