I don't mean to sound contentious, but is this really the place for this sort 
of message?  I have been an AOL user since 1991, and a Mac user since 1984, 
and I'm very very happy with my Mac and AOL 5.0.  If you don't like AOL 5.0, 
if it conflicts with your other software, then don't use it -- but don't 
trouble us with offtopic opinions about a piece of computer software.  I'm 
too busy mindsailing off to Newfoundland and environs in my armchair to be 
bothered with "PC industry technical stuff."
