The trade press has always been extremely bizarre, due in part, I
think to the fact that most of the trade writers are for the most part
journalists who have learned a little about computers, not computer
scientists who have learned a little about journalists.  Do you really
expect pithy and insightful information from a group that (to believe
what your read in, say, PC Week) only recently grudgingly came to admit
that multitasking might be a good idea?
