I was an Air Traffic Controller.  We deployed with 20 generators which powered 
our direct tv, nintendo, and air conditioners.  In our gear was enough room to 
pack golf clubs and anything else we wanted so in four years I never humped a 
pack any farther than about ten feet once I was out of boot camp and SOI.

my problem with it is when we want to do something new in an app and we get the 
"you need SQL 2000 to do that" or "that's only available in Office XP" or they 
just move the icons around (which really pisses me off) and they call it a new 
version.  Our next office deployment will be Open Office.  We are pretty 
Exchange dependent though.  Nothing easy in open source can replace it without 
the users noticing.  Some things are close.  Maybe in another year
