Hello from Gregg C Levine
I am inclined to agree with all of you.
I have AT&T Worldnet's DSL service, which is supplied by Covad. As I
understand that, it turns out that the commercial side of AT&T's
activities are also jointly supplied by Covad. They are in the exact
same position that the clueless ISP is, that the fellow complained
about in an earlier message. I run here, yes Windows, and Linux. They
completely support Windows, barely support Macs, and do not support
Linux. They do not even know what that is. They have a user supplied,
and sometimes maintained website. It does not cover Linux or FreeBSD,
or any of the BSD operating systems properly. It does not even cover
the BSD operating systems.
However, I suspect its because they haven't a clew as to what their
own servers are running that they chose Windows to be the default OS,
never realizing that it does not cover the monopoly that it was as
much as five years earlier.
Oh and their tech support is exactly like the fellow who started this
It is going to take an industrial strength miracle to straiten out
these companies. And I am fresh out of them.
