I agree with you all about Linux, and I dream about using only Linux.
But the problem is that is very hard to make the things work.
Why? because there are a lot of linux, a lot of ways to do the same thing.
I've spend a entire day trying to configure samba (by SWAT).
I almost got there, but I could not wait longer.
Now I have linux in my personal computer and with more time I'll try to make it work there and then replace NT.
