These were not IT folks, they were folks in entirely non-IT roles at
the South Pole. One was an electrician who keeps the generators
working that supply power to our drilling rig for the installation
phase of our experiment - someone I _do_ want to associate with for
his particular expertise.
These people just happened to come by my desk to ask me something and
saw multiple shell windows open, and the only environment _they_ had
ever seen was DOS. They were representative of the general public,
not of someone who would be in my department at work.
