Those who like it, and there are quite a few, like it a lot. I have no
personal animus against the program, its users or designers; I just find it
non-intuitive and do not like to make that many changes to the way I
normally do things just to accomodate one program (that I can do without
and use a different one that doesn't give me so many hassles).
And I have memory-envy. 768 megs on the main dual-xeon 866's, but I would
love to full-boat that board with 4 gigs. Can't afford that much, though.
