No, you didn't "quote" correctly at all. You used your mailer to quote part of my msg then responded with answers assuming
unquoted text. Must I quote every byte of the complete exchange?
Now, let's deal with, and *I* _do_ quote correctly, "Fighting amongst ourselves will do us no good - unless you are an M$ plant.":
I have no need to defend myself as an opponent of Microsoft. I am quite willing to submit testimonials to that effect, if the members
of this List so require. I go back to the good old days of Fido's OS2.DEBATE, when Fido was the only game in town. I have no MS
products on this machine. I've been ejected from Future Shop for mounting the proverbial soapbox and driving customers away :)
You, OTOH, are exhibiting the now classic Teamer approach, the rabid anti-MS slavering that destroyed Team-OS2, and is/was a
large contributing factor to IBM's withdrawal from the OS retail market. You are an embarassment to "serious" OS/2 Users.
