This is true. When Windows 2000 first came out, a friend of mine happened to be between jobs and got a position as customer support rep for Windows 2000. People would call in with questions, and she'd try to find that question in the big 3-ring binder that all service people had on their desks. This is a woman who had zero experience with Windows 2000, and STILL does not own a computer to this day!

I certainly hope they're nearing the finish line.

I'm not in denial, I'm just selective about the reality I choose to accept.
