Hi All;

I am glad to see this thread for two reasons;

1) When the Fedora list drifts to OT (which I usually don't mind) it
usually means that there is not much wrong with the latest version of
Fedora.  I am happy to know that because I haven't gotten around to
installing F8 yet.

2) I forget who said it.  But, "Learning English is like learning to
play the guitar, anybody can do it but only a few can do it well".  The
beauty of English and one of the reasons it has become an international
language, in my opinion, is that with a limited vocabulary and almost no
grammar a speaker can make him/herself understood.  Many many threads on
this list stand as testament to that rubric. 

Regards Bill
