      You are right of course we are looking at the same thing and as a photographer would say "if we change the lighting the girl appears to be a different woman" and I do need some input on using Linux if you would email me
      at horsefly_38866(REMOVE this)@... . What I was trying to say is the learning curve is much too high for me to take the time to try to get serious with Linux. But if I could get over a few rough spots I am learn to have a greater appreciation for Linux.

      Any other Linux user that would like to discuss Linux you may use the email me at the same address.
      Thanks for your patience

      Hi Ed. And here's "another side of the moon" (same moon, different
      lighting, view is of a different portion of moon).

      Each of us has the choice. You chose, I choose, others choose.

      And that's grand. I'll not argue that one is better than the other --
      because "it all depends . . ."

      cdr is my alias to burn a cd. (I much prefer command line burn cd's I
      do not use a gui for this task) Simply enter that alias and it
      executes/runs near 30 command lines for me.

      It's too much work and too time consuming for me to mouse click so
      many multiple times using a gui for the cd burning task.

      I use Linux because I can program so many of my tasks. Linux is way
      faster and far less work for me to get my tasks done than if I were to
      use windows.

      So, "it depends". Linux is more macro/programmable friendly than windows.

      And there's Perl which can use a template program to immediately
      create on the fly a specific program and run that created program on
      the fly. (a smart program that both generates and executes the needed
