Hmmm... I could use this to print a statement like Sorry, I don't do Windows.

Sure, why not? My posting of this code isn't really about religion or politics or anything. That is, lots of people have strong feelings about M$ and they display a wide gamut of differing emotional temperatures regarding M$ or their products. My basic attitude is this: Windoze is here to stay for a long while, in 'Net years, at a minimum it is going to be a significant presence for a decade (I am no fortune-teller, that's an off-the-cuff best guess).

This being the case, those who live Close to the Machine (hack, program for love/money) can make a choice about how to deal with it. I am not interested in trying to strong-arm people into accepting any particular well-worked-over dogma or agenda in this realm, but rather simply offer what I have discovered and in the process present my sometimes quirky take on things. Take it or leave it, as with all else that goes on amongst the Monks.

Knowledge is knowledge. Greater insight into what's going on with Perl on Win32 is fundamentally neutral information; what people chose to do with it (or whether they choose to pay any attention at all) is an individual matter.
