I just thought this e-mail in the kubuntu usergroups
was a bit different from normal.  The hassle of ms can
cause a lot of bother.  For low level users even the
unstable linux has basic working apps.  But of course
linux has the potential to send you crazy, however it
is a part of the OS unlike ms which can cause the
whole thing to crash.
