Which wouldn't have been a bad idea in hind sight. The Internet is infested with all kinds of crap that would be there if people had to spend hard cash!. The Internet used to be cool back in late 1980s and up to 1994 (that's when Netscape announced Navigator and from then on it was downhill). You wouldn't remember it - since I see you spouting off adapt or die like a rabid Linux bigot.
