This whole problem is funny.  I see it all the time where everyone
claims "not my problem, must be these people..." anyway, the reason I
find it funny is that they all seem to think that windows is all that
anyone every runs.  When I am debugging a network problem, I always plug
in my linux laptop, and if it works fine, then I tell the windows users,
its a windows problem and I walk away.  I then call desktop support for
them.
Funny it may be, but it makes using the system very frustrating.
Luckily, I use the internet more than the wife, otherwise there would
be pressure to use something else.
