> If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous sketch,

> ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
> COSTELLO: Thanks I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about

> ABBOTT: Mac?

> COSTELLO: Never mind the windows.. I need a computer and software.
> ABBOTT: Software for Windows?
> COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write
> proposals, track expenses and run my business. What do you have?

> COSTELLO: Which word in office for windows?
> ABBOTT: The Word you get when you click the blue 'W'.
> COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue 'w' if you don't start with some
> straight answers. What about financial bookkeeping? You have anything I can
> track my money with?

> ABBOTT: Money.
> COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?
> ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.
> COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?

> COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?

> COSTELLO: How do I turn my computer off?
> ABBOTT: Click on 'START'...............
