True, however, when school uses MS Word (on both MAC and IBM) as its
standard Word processor, then I am kind of locked in. When I first built my
system, I had intended to run Unix. However, as a software developer and
consultant, I have had to stay somewhat up to date with Windows development,
even though my last 3 years up until December have been working in the Digital
OSF/1 Alpha Compiler Group where I am on a short leave of absence due to IRS
and Digital rules regarding Software Contractors.
