I've been working with some ppl at the office who are 'WinDoze' users, and
have been able to meet most of their demands ... the latest difficult one
has been plug-ins for Netscape ... I'm cheating though.  Upgrading them
all to 4.0, installing VMWare with Win95 just so that they can run
Netscape with their PlugIns *grin*  At least when they get the "blue
screen of death", they won't have to reboot their computer, just kill a
window :)
