I often ask myself that....  Just last week I was trying to help a m***n who 
was taking a Master's degree in Information Systems, who apparently knew 
nothing about _any_ programming languages, nor Windows, and couldn't install 
a Java SDK.  I seriously considered just responding with the program 
requirements - which say they're not supposed to need such help.
