I care.  But because of my work (and the OS choices of those I usually
work FOR, I have to have at least one computer running Win XP.  As the
WLAN card doesn't play nicely with Ubuntu it might as well be this one.
(And I do have a server and two desktop machines running Ubuntu at home,
si it's not like I've abandoned the penguin for good.)

For sure.
But what are the chances any of them read a list like this?  :-S

As things are now I don't have the time to initiate anything.  But I do keep
and eye on this, to see if someone else figures it out.
