Yes - I second that. But one comment if I may, please ... DNS has had a
lot of money put into it and it works very well in MS. Personally, I
accept, and am sure others do too, that good software may not be gnu or
free and so this is one item I wish I could buy for ubuntu (linux).
Please excuse me saying this as I know many hate 'unnecessary' emails.
But I have read hundreds of posts and constantly hear the mantra 'it
must be free' which I think is a bit narrow minded with some software

Just my two bobs worth.
