Rick,
I thank you for your confidence in my ability, but the truth is I'd likely
buy an Apple laptop, if I could afford it & it was a "populous solution"
and not "elite" (as many friends claim) _OR_ I'd use a Window$
machine, if M$ had a decent development environment.

Monroy's corollary to Osberg's observation, "If you want the correct
answer in a forum, enter proclaiming you have the absolute correct
answer *that without dispute* answers the question, And make
sure that answer you give is complete wrong."
