(even though my suggestions weren't accepted)
It goes to show you weren't deterred in continuing with testing on TPFC!
Absolutely and I've tried to be as encouraging to serious users Andrew was here.
I'm surprised by the number of IT Admins I've met along the way who install application after application and have never even heard of this site.
I think I understand most admin's position: most users don't want to wonder if the software they put on their computer is going to work according to plan. So putting a program on a computer and NOT having it integrated into the OS in an easy and smooth way (double click on it, send emails with it) doesn't make sense.
Still, there are advantages: portable software might not be as slick as commercial software, but it won't bog the computer down, constantly running all the time and stacking up registry cruft. Users won't need RAM upgrades and/or a new machine refresh every 2 years. I'm running into that situation with someone I know who thinks a 3 year laptop refresh is impossibly long.
