No risk of that. Editors are an issue people feel strong about. But I 
doubt anyone really cares that much about gawk/awk. And regarding 
compilers, what options are there? I don't know any other C compiler that 
can compile all the GNU packages without problems.



I have serious mail server problems at the moment. The first paragraph of 
every message I receive gets cropped. Does that also apply to outgoing 
mail? Do you see the "1" in the 1st line of this message?

The real art of conversation
is not only to say the right thing at the right time,
but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
