Well - perhaps the next step might be to look at what tech-apps there are for Linux? Would they run under Lin-Emu? After that, would be to take the bull by the naughty-bits and port an app of your liking to FBSD. I too can sit and bad-yack, but it's like politics - if you don't vote, you have no right to complain about how the country is ran. I'm not a coder - I don't complain (much). So, I praise all the good things that FBSD has done thus far and anticipate all the good still to come. -- Best regards, Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
