Subject: Re: [vox] Linux changes you...

Well, I'm more of a writer and not a programmer or system administrator;
I just use Linux because I like it better than Windows.  But I've
certainly found that I've changed my work habits in ways which make a
lot more sense to me.

Last night I had to use Windows 2000 for the first time in over a month
to work on a project for my wife.  I found myself thinking, "How come I
can't get a shell open to navigate my files normally while I'm using
Word?  God, this sucks!"  I also wasn't able to transfer files back and
forth between my Palm Pilot and my desktop the way I like.
