I feel the same way about Microsoft Windows products.  Unfortunately, neither
of us are going to get our way.  And things are about to turn even nastier
as more and more sites add Flash and other GUI only interfaces to their sites.

Face it, businesses have little concern about decreasing percentages of
users of lynx, regardless of the reason for their use.  Most of them don't
even care about being compatible with the non Microsoft GUI browsers out there!
