I hate to use myself as an example...but why do I hate Linux? And
why wouldn't I recommend anyone to use it? Past Experience.

When we first took this on, we were *very* problematic. But,
since we considered it to be the best that was out there, we
persevered(sp?) with the problems and improved it overall. There are
bound to be alot that, at the beginning, just didn't want to waste time
with it, saw all the problems and left...taking their bad experience with
them.

My experience is that "bad experiences" are heard more often then
good ones.

Neil built up a 'registration page' that I'm curious as to how
many ppl are actually using it...just checked, and:

postgresql=> select count(name) from register;
count
-----
1361
(1 row)

Not bad...but I don't imagine that's a tenth of all the users, is
it?
