[Computerbank] everything the same for everyone??

Thanks for reminding me of these things Craig, it's part of why I think
everyone -- even techos -- should be on here. I thought that most of the
standardisations and (to a degree) simplifications of the "Computerbanking"
of Linux was done, is it? 

Of course, I don't know a thing about it really, what is the situation? Can
everything developed in Melbourne or Perth be used without adaptation
anywhere else in Australia??

may mean actually making some progress, i.e. eliminating as much as
possible the need for the techie in the first place. (or to put it another
way, leveraging what techie help you have and then distributing it - put
the smarts into the software load/configuration.)
