No, and very very no. :P

That explains your opinion of it being good. Try maintaining it over a
large network like my school did. The network didn't work - THE FIRST
TWO YEARS. When I left that school it still took 45 minutes to log in.

I recently got my mom using Linux, after maintaining the hopeless mess
she made of her Windows install. She happily clicks away, and is far
happier and doing far more with it, than she ever was with Windows XP.

Not that any of this is on-topic at all. For the sake of the other list
members, I'll agree to disagree :)
