Fair enough, but do you try reading/posting Usenet news from these
different systems to check that those aspects of their functionality
Have any of your Filipino colleagues been given an opportunity to
try out any of these systems?
It will be most instructive to learn which one they prefer.

Most amusing, but rather unfair.
Perhaps he's self-employed. The poster in question advised me that I
should get a job a few months ago, so I could afford better hardware.
I've been self-employed since the age of 12 - nearly fifty years - and
have no intention of trading the advantages of that for the nebulous
security of a regular paycheck.
His posts indicate he's as hide-bound in his way as I am in mine.
Life isn't fair. It's not meant to be.
Overcoming the disadvantages we face is what makes us strong.

Only in so much as the poster posts this information to a public
If somebody is touting/something as being brilliant, working like
a charm, etc, all the usual sales talk, would you be a little dubious
if the person expounding these notions does not appear to use the
product which they are so keen to promote?
> Get off your high horse........
You are clearly riding one by your attitude.

Most likely not.
Anyway, for a "Vanta" driver, go:
Product type: Legacy
Product Series: Vanta series
Operating System: choose whatever you're using
What's so difficult about that?
Who messed with my anti-paranoia shot?
