Yes. Well, not your mother (unless she paid me) but I used to support my father and I ran Unix on his system. It was great. If he had a problem I could generally get into his system and work on it as if I was right there except he couldn't watch over my shoulder and interrupt me every 30 seconds with questions. Now he uses WindBlows and it is easier for me only beause I can send him to my siblings for support. If I am willing to support someone who doesn't understand the technology I would rather put them on Unix rather than MSW. -- D'Arcy J.M.
