What's nice is being paid to support a win shop but
the mgmt lets you use a pc *nix for sysadmin, use
samba, put a telnetd on NT, etc. Your friend must
be using fvwm95 - I just got StarOffice last night,
all 70Mb of it.

For topical material - I'd love to find a Xenix or
SCO unix box o' 5 1/4" disks and manuals to run
on a 386 - used to see 'em for sale cheap at hamfests.
