Worked real well for me when I was sysadmin for a small company in the
park. When the "I L#$e you" virus hit, we got lots of emails from
outside, but since all our desktop were running WFW 3.1 or earlier we
were immune. Of course the obsolescence and the headaches that created
caused a different problem, keeping sysadmins (did I mention I don't
work there anymore :-) ).
