Heh...I wasn't dissing Windows. I'm strictly non-religious about OS. We're
a mixed shop that's predominantly Windows in fact. The awkwardness I was
referring to was having multiple clients (typical windows setup) vs.
multiple accounts (typical unix setup). In the Unix case, you could have
your shell script vars loaded via /etc/profile or something. There are
equivalents in the Windows domain case, but they are, in my humble opinion
