I sure wasn't. I'm not _predisposed_ to UNIX, I'm _dependent_ on
UNIX. And there's an awful lot of NTs and Macs here too, including
this Mac. Gag.

Fortunately, one of the hard core groups around here put in a request for
a TW that knew UNIX. I'd even have to be willing to use a heavy-duty
Sparc Workstation at my desk.

Gee. What a bummer. Not that I'll actually _get_ a Sparc, mind you.
But I'm certainly willing. Looks like an awful nasty briar patch over
there...
