I'll admit that some of the damned odb stuff is annoying (mostly
because the documentation is down to IBM standards), but between
the F4 key (I like plagiarizing when I code shell scripts) and the
Logical Volume Manager [I hear rumors of work on that for Linux, so
my hopes are up -- hell, ever since IBM joined the Apache team, I've
got no idea where the world is going -- then Intel bought into Red

By the way, whover was making the threat to someone else, I'd love
to have an RT myself. Second best keyboard ever made.
