Do you have any evidence that "small businesses" are any more clued than home users? The gym I have a membership at has a PC at the front desk that has Internet connectivity (hey, connectivity is *cheap* when you're in a research park ;) I'm willing to bet that most of the people who work there are *NOT* clued users or sysadmins. The music store I frequent for guitar gear has a PC - the store owner admits that he's a great guitarist, a "not in chapter 11" businessman, and totally clueless about computers - this guy who plays bass fixes it for him when it's totally dead in the water (fortunately for the store, I happen to know the bass player, and that guy *does* have some clue - but I'm positive that nobody told the guys at the store about SirCam, or CodeRed, or anything like that). When David Moore said 'Small Business', he meant *SMALL* business. How many 5-and-10 employee stores out there *DONT* have on-staff sysadmins, but *DO* have PC's that enployees surf the web when business is slow? -- Valdis Kletnieks Operating Systems Analyst Virginia Tech
