Oh man, I fired this up remotely on my Vista machine at work.  I'm
typing from the Kubuntu version of Firefox in Vista right now.  Does
anybody happen to know how this shows up as a browser?  Does it show
web traffic as Linux or if I was using Konquerer with this thing would
it do something funny like say Konquerer on Vista?  Just curious
mostly.  Too bad there's not a GNOME version, but no biggie.  I
haven't put it through the wringer yet, but I assume it works better
than WINE.  So many things don't work in WINE, alas.  Now, how best to
make use of this thing...
