Thanks Floppy.

You know it's strange ... I borrowed this off another Linux/Window site I visit ... and the only replies are off Linux users, most of them, not all, also use Windows ... but non from Windows only users.

The 'survey' isn't restricted to Linux/Windows users but anyone can participate ... hell even MAC users.
