I totally agree.  My BeBox seems perfectly matched to what Be was 
hinting at becoming.  I just wish I didn't have spend so much tutoring 
Wintel lusers to use my GeekPort more.  I going to have to work late 
again scrubbing an entire office clean of 15-20 Wintel viruses because

files.  Idiot!  </soapbox>
