Spelling issues

And others of us enjoy the features that developers who specialize in newsreaders put in their products. MS gave me 'Paint' for free, too-- but I use a Jasc product for any graphic work I do.

I never ever use Microsoft for web-browsing, email, or newsreading. My computer has never suffered a virus, either...
WinVN (my newsreader) is old and has no spell checker. I just have to try my best.
Obvious typos never bother me. Creative spelling of plant-related terms might get an, "Oh, do you mean [this]?" (A spell-checker's dictionary is likely lacking in horticultural terms and scientific names.)
I should add that I know of very bright people who are spelling-impaired. (There is a medical term for it.)

Well, you may be safe from all the Internet Explorer and Outlook exploits, but unsecured linux boxes are pretty commonly compromised, too. I used to be responsible for a firewall at work, and almost everytime someone port-scanned us or tried to connect to various non-existant services, the source was a totally unsecured Red Hat 5.x or 6.x system. I understand Red Hat default installations are much more secure, now, but at the time it was pitiful.

dial-up line :-).
I ran Linux for a while (Slackware, kernel 0.97 at first, IIRC), but switched to windows for various compatability reasons. Now that I'm retired, I'm planning to switch back when I get a round tuit :-). I have an older version of TurboLinux on my drive, but never really liked the way it was set up. I liked Slackware and will probably grab the latest of that distribution when I do switch.

Larry, you are a PRIME candidate for Fedora. I got on the Linux bus at RH 5.2 and off the Windows pedicab at Win '98. While I would recommend Lycoris for people who have never used Linux before, Fedora is probably right up your alley.
It does my heart good to see that people on this newsgroup are at least aware of the possibility of using Linux. I've been using it exclusively for years and I've long awaited the day when I would see Linux discussed on a non-computer-centric forum such as this. Well, it's finally arrived.
My wife, a total non-geek, loves Linux. We both use Windows when absolutely necessary (we have ONE 'holdout' program that we rely on that keeps Win98 loaded on one desktop and dual-booted on the laptop), so it isn't that we hate Windows with any sort of religious fervor, it's just that Linux works much better for us than Windows ever did ... and for a small fraction of the expense.
I wish you happy gardening AND happy computing,

with the newsgroups.

computer types that exceeds that of the general population, if only because we're all online.
I started programming when computers had vacuum tubes and spent a lot of time doing process control stuff, which tends to teach you a lot about the innards :-).
Most places I worked until recently wouldn't buy an operating system (minicomputer) unless they could get the source code so they could modify it :-).
