Why must it be so annoying to do anything useful under windows? I spent more time than I care to consider just trying to get RCS and EMACS to play nice under Windows 2000. I'd blame the GNU software, but I've been able to get it to run flawlessly under Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, and HP-UX. With Win2k, the only way I could get anything useful to happen was to install the cygwin tools. Does it really count as installing under windows if you need to throw in a Linux emulation layer?
