It's funny you mention that. as we speak i'm installing everquest platinum onto my netbook across my wireless network off my HTPC's DVD drive, and I just updated my synaptics drivers. I guess I don't notice their "pitfalls" the way other people do because they simply just do not affect me. I'm a fan of mapping network drives. My netbook is my desktop's card reader the way my desktop is my netbook's everything-it-doesn't-have. I don't know where i'd be if I were suddenly smitten with the brain of a normal end-user. So I have to give it to you on that note. This leaves us with one option: we must exterminate the noobs.
