In the News It does not happen every day that news related to computer technology - news we report on every day - makes its way to the headline news programs and newspapers here in my home country, The Netherlands. So when it does, I am usually on the edge of my seat, simply because it offers an interesting glimpse into how 'normal' people perceive our little world. The last few days, however, that casual interest has made way for something else - tooth gnashing irritation.

hehe.. I'll be giggling about that for the next week. I openly advocate alternatives but I do like to see a fanboy from any camp step in his own sht.

The challenge on my wishlist is close to your story but from the other perspective. I'd love to have an empty second workstation issued and try to replicate all my daily functions on it. I expect the only things that would be a challenge are inferfacing with Exchange Server and building complicated spreadsheets outside of Excel. In the later case, I've been limited by schools favouring VB so all my overly complicated cell functions are layered VB functions which OOo only recognizes parts of when I checked last.

anyone know what my comment was modded down for? I'm not questioning the comment mod process; I'm just curious to understand why as it seemed to be a very balanced opinion.
