Honestly, I don't really care about windoz interoperability myself...but I know lots of users do, so I try to make it easier. jags is kind of a dodgy application. I have added linneighborhood to the repository. Install it thusly:
I would rather we got away from that scenario Windows altogether. What maks Windows so crap is not the interface or even the massive security issues. It is having everything packed into one 'Explorer' type shell which means when something simple like your browser decides to die it takes the system out with it.
Personally I would say use browsers for browsing, use Office for documents and use your home directory navigator for navigating as individual tools like it is now as opposed to one big clutter as Windows does.
