not all computers need to be "shutdown"
the rusty old Amiga was just happy as pie to be turned off with a
power switch with no ill effects to anything. :-) If I recall BeOS was
just a happy being turned off when you were done. Then again my Macs
run for MONTHS without needing to be turned completely off or
rebooted. My Windows machine is pretty much just for games and it
stays turned off most of the time anyway. :-)

just because Windows has stupid dogma requirements doesn't mean ALL
computers need the same.
