As I recall, the fact that there's no standard Windows sound devices makes
providing audio more daunting. Compare that with the Mac, which comes with
standard audio.

I think you're pulling my leg. There's no "CU-SeeMe app for DOS", is there?

Well, I loathe Windows and DOS (despite the Pentium and 486 on my desk). I
even loathe NT and the new OS/2, but mostly on principle, because I haven't
used them much (since NT decided to eat its file system a few weeks ago :-)
Something about having to worry about interrupts in a modern operating
system rubs me the wrong way. Flame replies to alt.flame, please.

Hey, wait just a minute there. I've been learning American Sign Language
and it sure is a lot of fun. Besides, doesn't the Windoze version allow
you to type text at the bottom of your screen like the Mac version does?
