I never lost sleep over Microsoft's suites, but data lock-ins probably
annoyed me the most. Also, it is nice to compose thousands of messages
without ever losing any text in the process. Textboxes in the browser
likewise. my supervisor uses IE and OE under XP and I see these crashes
regularly. I have to bite my lip at times.
Some people choose to suck their own poison; I, in turn, respect that. Okay
for me, bad for them, Jack. But why? Why if there is a better way... which
is free and inter-operable too. Cattle effect? Budled software bundled with
user laziness and unwillingness to learn?
