    No, it is a serious problem, I spent 3 hours in CompUSA trying to buy replacement furnace filters. Also, people tend to shop for computers at heating supply stores.

    Were you a Windows expert the VERY first time you looked at a computer with Windows, or did it take a little time.....

    Did you ever think those guys may have been around longer than Linux? Actually, I believe so.

    Oh it gets worse!!! I was talking to my friend (he has to take a corse about operating systems other than windows at his college). So he knows I'm the guy that uses like 5 different ones so he was talking to me. I mentioned Linux and he thought I was talking about Line-X, this stuff you pour in your truck bed to keep it clean or something....

    WILL THE MADDNESS EVER END!
