	My comments:
The much hated mouse-cording, is a language in its own right.
Perhaps analagous to 'stack-based' calculators (the original HP),
much loved by the users who learned how to use them fluently
- not me.

Apparently the proper piano finguring is also irritating at first ?

PS. is LNO (linux based n-o) X86 dependant, or
cound it run on a non-X86 Linux ? I guess not.
