Wait. We're trying for world domination? I must have missed the memo.

I'm working to make my system as productive as possible for me, so I
can do the things I want on my computer with a minimum of hassle. I'm
also here to make the most efficient and stable system for my employer
to build his business on.

Why is "winning" so important? What's the prize? I note the question
"Why do we want to win?" is never asked.

Have a nice day,
