Been reading this thread for awhile, I understand the need for requirements analysis.
Rick just brought up a question that I have always known you never do but I couldn't tell you why...

I would be very appreciative if someone could explain this.

As I said, *I* find amusing people insisting on interpreting a
substantive debate as interpersonal soap opera. That point even made it
to my Lexicon page, quite a few years ago:
Moen's First Law of Debate
"No matter what the issue, someone will try to turn it into a
personality dispute." In part, this is because complex issues become
more comprehensible if you convert them into soap opera, however
Call me a cynic, but I suspect that relatively few readers of this list
actually got my point about the reasons why requirements analysis and
competent system adminstration are essential for preventing a software
project, especially on *ix, from being a waste of time and a sour
experience for everyone. On the other hand, _everyone_ understands the
concept of a dumb schoolyard brawl.
Perhaps you can tell me: Why _is_ it a bad idea to install system
software in a user's home directory? (Take your time, but no passing of
notes with your classmates.)
