comment Who decided the default shell prompts in Linux?
The realization that this is prevalent in RedHat also makes sense: they really don't like updating things like this for fear of "upsetting what people are used to". I kid you not: I received that response from a feature request some years ago. I no longer install RedHat if I can avoid it.

comment Problems with running a PHP file to include directories via Linux?
I agree, this should be avoided. Unfortunately, it's sometimes necessary when using an include tree that makes assumptions about file locations.

That's depressing. It sounds like a re-install of XP is the only solution. I don't think I can arrange that. :-(
