this is so interesting. Win32 has succeeded in making linux expensive.
you are asking that the Win32 environment not work the way it was
designed to work -- at least i think this is what you are saying.
i am very impressed that it was able to make free software expensive,
this is a simply amazing accomplishment!
Where in my e-mail did your read that *Linux *was going to cost me
money? Read that sentence again. Or, better yet, I'll quote it. "I
should also clarify that I have considered switching to Linux to make
this easier, *but I just don't have the time, money, and hardware to do
so without destroying the Win32 environment I'm required to use in the
professional world.*" Did I say that the money, time, and hardware I
was going to invest was going to be invested in buying Linux or did I
just say that I would have to invest money, time, and hardware into a
Linux setup? Here's a few things that cost money that fit perfectly into
* A spare hard drive
* A reliable partition manager (instead of a drive)
* Perhaps an alternate computer entirely
* Potential other hardware for those components that Linux drivers
don't function well on.
Before I sign off on this, let me quote the second half of that sentence
again. *"*But I just don't have the time, money, and hardware to do so
*without destroying the Win32 environment I'm required to use in the
professional world.*" So that pretty much eliminates installing over top
of my current OS.
