My Mac friends keep telling me it's the PERFECT OS.  With the PERFECT users.

I've used similar verbiage.  Unfortunately it always winds up being an 
IT issue.

We just created 200 email addresses for spoke offices.  Of the 30% that 
bothered to reply, 90% need help `setting it up'.  We created 
step-by-step instructions (with PICTURES) and someone called to say they 
were `too daunting' and could we send someone out.

It's only a matter of time til someone calls and asks how to spell their 
own name.  I'm re-thinking my stance on automatic weapons.
