Tell me about it.  You wouldn't believe how much crap I'm going through
trying to get my dad's DOS/Win 3.1 software and data onto a new Win95

[Yes, I know....Win95 bites, but I couldn't in good taste recommend
Linux to him QUITE yet.  He is interested though, and I might set it up
as a second partition on his computer]

But anyway, if we can make stuff like this easy....an EASY way to move
applications and data from one computer to another...that would be a
great goal.  Linux is inherently MUCH better at this than 'Doze, we just
need to put a pretty face on it.

Linux: Everything else is just a toy!
