Changing the captain doesn't instantly affect the course of a
supertanker. What he does now will affect the Future, but not so much
the present. And as passionate as I am about M$ vs Anything else, it

it's more of as low priority.
You know, there was a Directive in the 80s that said all computer had to
be Posix Compliant ... maybe they should roll back to that.
