What would be nice is if the Update & Uninstall applet could remove all 
links to the app as well.  Its rather annoying to install an app and 
still have symlinks to it floating all over the place.  Of course if 
BeOS used shadows instead of symlinks, this would be a problem.


In a world full of Windows, we're handing out rocks.

HTML belongs in email the way vinyl siding belongs on gerbils.  Sure 
its cute at first, but its just plain WRONG!!!

It is reassuring to consider that in spite of the many historical 
expectations of end-of world scenarios, armageddon, natural disasters 
and catastrophes, and general hysteria of the gullible, that the cosmos 
rolls on, utterly indifferent, uncaring, and oblivious to any arbitrary 
and capricious enumerations counted by man. - Ross Milner
