"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."
