      That's the problem. The interfaces that might attract that kind of people
      make it less usable by people like me, for whom it is a useful and
      necessary tool. I understand the logic of what they think needs to be
      done to attract the marching morons. What I don't understand is why on
      Earth they should want to do so. Are they just driven by envy of Bill
      Gates and his billions?

      Maybe somebody needs to start a new distribution: Technix, maybe? I
      don't think Geeknix really works :-)
