    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    Ii wavy.
    Frankly, I had a look and I'm not impressed.

    Dual boot with a linux distro, say Ubuntu and buy the book "The Linux Command Line, A complete Introduction by William. E. Shotts. Jr.

    This will show you how to unleash the full power of the CLI and accomplish tasks that a GUI is unable to do.

    It's also a great introduction to GNU software which should always be available to challenge Microsoft's monopoly. A free market economy encourages competion.

    Never dismiss Linux's flexibility.

    Really I just mentioned that as an FYI and I am not using Linux on a daily basis any more.

    awk, sed, regex, and grep can do about anything. I agree!
