Re: [vox] MS-bashing time!

Hi all [I'm new]

We have similar info. kiosks around here. I've discovered that all one needs
to do is follow you nose round the menus for a while, then hit
'back','back','back' over and over really fast, and you will shortly be
thrown back to a windows nt/95 ish interface. of course, you can't do much
with it since it's not properly set up to work with the touch screen, but
it's fun nontheless.

personally, I would have hoped professional windows geeks would know enough
to disable the explorer shell on  a public machine that only does 1 thing.

jus sayin,
