  This is where I am too.  The consumer must be told that there are choices (plural).  They
  must be told that the choices are ALL better alternatives than M$-stuff -- right down the
  line.  This is the truth.  M$ has superior marketing and propaganda departments, but those
  departments are not the ones that create the software.  The M$ software departments are the
  most lackluster in the industry.
