Have you taken a college course

not since the advent of PC, but I know even some grade schools seems to require Microsoft junk and tests via WEB Pages. That only indicates to me the quality of our (US) education system, seems 'real' teaching went out of style in the 80s.

had to deal in a "business-to-business" interaction at all in the past 15 years?

Everyday, what I want to say is either in the email body or in a text file or rarely a Libreoffice doc. If I have to deal with Microsoft formatted files they can deal with file formats I prefer.

It's becoming more clear every day how the major Linux distributions have all been drinking the same cool-aid.

Seems so, but as of now 32 bit Linux has 22 years left (year 2038). I heard that may be fixed but AFAIK nothing yet. In any case for 32 bit I would use NetBSD or OpenBSD since the 2038 issue does not exist for them. I would like to know what "major dist" officially includes :) One distro I consider major just released a 32 bit version.
