Reminds me of when I finally switched to broadband...  I couldn't get them to 
play nicey nice with me without running their stupid Windows CD.  I wound up 
making a place for Windows (ME, the only version I could bum a CD for), and 
then spending several hours screwing around with it to get to a point where I 
had enough screen resolution to click the "Next" button on that retarded 
system that didn't let you drag a window with that Alt key.  Bleah.

But going through the usual KDE setup channels did not fix the resolution 
problem on this thing.  I had to edit xorg.conf by hand 
and %s/1024x768/1280x800/g which still didn't quite seem to get things right.

On the bright side...  Wow.  Windows is SO lame.  I rebooted to Windows at 
some point, and it went through some system restore rigamarole.  It reverted 
all the updates I had spent 10,000 hours clicking through stupid install 
wizard screens to get installed, and it obliterated all my user accounts.

The auto updater thingie is sitting here at 60% complete forever, which 
probably means I have a virus now or something.

People pay money to put up with this shit, and then come over here to talk 
trash about Linux?
