Hmmm... I could use this to print a statement like Sorry, I don't do Windows.
It's not that my scripts won't run there; I'm just sick of BG and company.
Update: Aack! Phht!! My first negative post. Sigh...
Update #2: From some comments that I received (and a negative vote), I realize that I should have clarified the above statement. It was meant simply as a joke. While yes, I get tired of the M$ attitude of "It compiles. Ship it!", I am not really an anti-Microsoft fanatic. I'm just tired of dealing with their bugware and having to code for their "embrace and extend" features. As a programmer, I would prefer that standards be adopted, not companies.
If I am asked to code in VB or to develop in VBScript, I'll do it. I just prefer universal standards. Coding something that will only work with one company's products just goes against the grain of what I prefer to do.
That being said, I did appreciate your script and felt it was useful (I voted it ++). I program Perl on both Windows and Linux environments and I can appreciate the need for what you've developed. I'll try to be more careful with my humor in the future :)
