    Somewhere in here there's another thread on this same subject. Each person who gave an opinion also presented good reasons for that opinion. Some computer guru on here should know how to find it. What it really comes down to is your particular application.

    The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened. --Norman Mattoon Thomas, 6 time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America
