	So I know all the points you make, and they have occurred to
me before.  This one has made me wish, for years, that some Free
Software Head could get a serious review of the latest Windows debacle
and review it with the perspective of a GNU point of view.  If the OS
is not up to those standards, the conclusion must therefore be that it
is "Not ready for prime time" and companies must stop using it between
the hours of 7pm and 11pm.

A: No.
Q: Should I include quotations after my reply?
