Don't really agree with all that. Look at the GNOME office suite, the
dialup configuration utilities (to be honestly I didn't use them, but
they are there), etc. I actually use my Lin at home, I just happen to
have a little network there (3 compu's share a modem).

Not true. My Samba so-fast-setup printer is actually served by Windows.

I will put any text in the FAQ that you think suitable. But I'm afraid
you'll have to do that text yourself; as you see I am not very capable
of spitting good arguments now.

Anyway I'll try the diffs stuff.

I understand (from logging in) that cranleigh did some Y2K backup work
or whatever. Anyway apache needs to be reconfigured so that our website
headers and footers are shown as normally again. It is too early for
alarm yet, but it would be nice to have that fixed within a few days.
