I don't use 'Bloze at all....no reason to and many not to. ;)

I've been using KDE 4.* for a few weeks.....checking it out, finding
bugs, and getting used to it because I know sooner or later, my clients,
or at least some of them, will have it.

'Don't understand that....I've been using OpenOffice for years...NO
reason to use M$. OO produces production ready PDFs.

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties
than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to
control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by
deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks
will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up
homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." Thomas Jefferson, 1802
