Aaaw come on! You can't say any *NIX browser is rock steady? I use
Incompetent Exploiter for MSIE-only websites at home, whereas Netscape
refuses to display them properly. Other than that, I use WinAMP, watch
DivX-movies and all sorts of things you don't actually do at work. Oh,
and surf pr0n. :-)

I don't find Linux a particular "nice and sleek" desktop operating
system for those kind of tasks.
And no, no noisy power-eating machines into my home. Not until I buy a
house, atleast. :-)
