It's sort of a philosophical issue. Windows users tend to be something
like spoiled children, and like dealing with a spoiled child, you have
to find ways to get them to learn in spite of themselves. We probably
need to suggest that they try to find someone with a stronger OS rather
than the weak one they have, so that they might have that stronger OS
person process their files for them. We just can't expect everyone to
have the patience and cognitive skills to be able to handle these tasks
-- isn't that what Windows was created for anyway -- the "OS for Dummies"?
