Hm yeah. Got a mate back in Australia who has been dithering for 15
months over whether he should back up to a usb stick, a burnable dvd,
or a usb portable 180 gig hard drive. It does not occur to him to ever
make copies of his $HOME in the meantime. I think the guys I am
dealing with here (Thailand) will be a little more savvy than that.

In a world without walls who needs Windows (or Gates)? Try Linux instead!
