    I grew up on UNIX. (college) Fortran language, mainframes, and no rules. He who uses the most CPU time wins. I was addicted. After a stint in the army I got back to it. Bought a Tandy Color Computer, OS9 and a C compiler. Again I was back to enjoying life.

    Eventually moved on to MSDOS. Fun until (cue Darth Vader music) Windows. The day the fun died.
    I'm not going to rant here. But I'll say this. The programs I wrote for MSDOS in ASCII C still compile and run under Linux.
    Not Windows.

    Diaries are funny things Sam. Type one letter and you never know where you might end up. My apologies to J.R.R. Tolkien.
