I'm sorry, steve, but that sounds like a personal problem to me.  As
others have noted, and notes to which I concur, there is no real /need/
for Winduhs, only a perception.  Alter your perceptions and look for
Open Source/cross platform alternatives.  Open Office comes to mind.
Needless to say, this does not hold true in an employment environment as
long as /the employer/ is paying for Winduhs.  Otherwise there are Open
Source alternatives to almost everything an employer could want.

Q: What's the difference between MicroSoft Windows and a virus? 
A: Apart from the fact that viruses are supported by their authors, 
use optimized, small code and usually perform well, none.
