It's not moderated, as far as I can tell. <g>  Welcome to the project!  I
signed on a little less than a week ago.  Heady stuff, eh?

Rather than pasting most of your mail, I will simply say that I agree with
you 100%.  The aspects of Windows that are good and proper need to have
Linux counterparts, especially the "Wizard."

In point of fact, neither Bismarck nor Titanic were particularly difficult
to sink (or Tirpitz, for that matter <g>) -- it was just a matter of finding
the right target (especially for Bismarck)  Slackware has gone from hero to
zero in the course of a year, and Yggdrasil has dropped off the map
completely, as far as I can tell.  The market is fluid enough and there are
still huge gaps.

Nevertheless, I don't think Linux will be kicking Windows off of mainstream
desktops in large quantities.  For all of the reasons William mentioned, as
well as the fact that Linux does not have a PR firm or TV ads.  But it's not
a bad goal <G>.
