part of the reason while this list is sometimes tedious to follow is the
cross-platform nature of vnc. i read the samba lists as well, same
problem there. there is some truth in "different os, different culture".
apart from just not understanding each other properly due to subtle
jargon differences and/or familiarity with technical terms, the amount
of do-it-yourself attitude is certainly different for each of the os's
that vnc supports...
all the more kudos to wez and the other patrons of this list to chime in
with help and to support a great product. may the great sysadmin in the
sky forever let you maintain the system of your choice with your
favourite tools! :-D
