"One thing stands out in my mind: I can surely appreciate the
Linux commandline, and the lack of interest in graphics. More and
more I run across websites consisting of one huge multimedia plugin
presentation. It makes me downright angry, and few things in my
life trigger that response. The awareness of how that frustrates my
friend burns brightly, and I know it affects many others.
"Philosophically, I accept the notion of letting webmasters do
what they please, as long as it doesn't affect my computer. I turn
off functions in my browser which hand over too much control to
others. Indeed, I usually prefer to view the Net through a
plain-text browser. This is how I reduce things to match my
limitations. Frustration is hardly strong enough to describe what
it feels like when the website in question is the portal to
something critical in my life."
