I got an email which kind of said that my use of "Linux people" is disrespectful and could imply that people who use Linux couldn't afford to supply fundings.

It is *absolutely* not meant like this, I personally have Linux machines (Debian, now Ubuntu) but currently use Windows more. My server is Suse. I just wanted to express, that on linux afaik the people don't have the data in xls-format and prefer the text format. It's from hearsay/newsgroup/and my impression from a R-course. On Macs I personally know people who do a PhD and have their data in Excel. So I though, they could be interested.

English is not my native language. Sorry for writing in a sloppy way. Hans-Peter
