Lordy!! How could I have forgotten Desqview??? See?? Stuff like that
could be ported to linux and I'd kiss Xorg goodbye. (except for the
space games, gotta have space games!!) In my BBS days Desqview was the
ultimate sysop app. God, I'm feeling mortal now... <sigh> my impending
doom must be close at hand when Desqview is a vaguely remembered relic
of my illustrious past. I'll forget about women next, and then I'll
forget about that thing called lunch. Somebody just shoot me now. Ric
