It seems to me that the Computer-User world is divided into two basic camps -- those smart enough to take control of how their machines operate and those that don't care about such things. I prefer to use any OS other than Windows, so that I have complete control of my computers. That being said, there will always be those that just want their computer to work without having to fiddle with it, just as their are people that don't work on their own automobiles -- Deal with it!(TM)
