Too much Windows Kool Aid for you Flatfish. your grip on reality is even 
weaker than in 2001 when I was last posting on COLA.

As a Windows user, this concerns you, not me. I don;t subcontract for 
anyone that uses Windows.

I have no such onerous license obligations regarding the Linux using 
companies I do remote Linux admin for.

Windows doesn't concern me in my business. I never have to deal with it.
Here you see my standard reply to Windows users, who are usually quite 
clueless, asking for free Windows admin from me.

Sadly no, I just haven't used Windows since 1979 and Windows 95. I'm a 
Unix person. You'll have to seek advice from a Windows user/admin.

It's very clear, thanks.

The effort you have put into your little attempt to validate Flatfishes 
continued use of corporately licenced Windows OS instead of paying for it 
himself, shows very clearly that Moshe Goldfarb is the same Winroll also 
known as Flatfish.

Linux full time, on the desktop, since August 1997
