Yeah, funny thing with working with people who use Windows...  Windows
often has enforced ignorance -- you CAN'T know how it works, so there's
not much you can do except reboot (which it tells you to do all the time).
It gets people in the training of just rebooting a machine whenever it's
not acting as you expect.  So...  People apply that knowledge to Linux.

"I've changed sendmail.cf, so now I need to reboot."  "Whoa!!!", I say...
