What I don't understand is why companies keep putting up with this
stuff.  I mean, sure it'll be expensive to change the first time, but
you don't have keep paying for licenses over and over, and proving your
innocence every time certain corporations and corporate coalitions
demand it.  Seems to me that even with the more expensive per-head labor
cost, it's cheaper all-around because you need fewer admins.  Maybe I
just don't understand "the way the business works".

Someone sent a link to an mp3 of a radio commercial to another list I'm
on.  I found it humorous, like a good cop/bad cop routine from an old
cheesy '30s police movie.
