Of course I would, but It's unlikely I'll try...my patience wears thin.   I 
have hardware greater than anything I could have dreamed of back in the 80's 
and yet the software is totally inadequate.    The solutions came long ago, 
Lisp Machines, Xerox Alto, Symbolics,  NeXt.....and yet nothing of that is 
available to the vast majority of us.
