It is a pure pleasure to sit at a microscope and pull a good key out
of your pocket.  I have all kinds of programs on my desktop that are
not much use in the lab unless I get another computer.  The
compactness and low resource overhead of these databases make them
more useable than you would expect from a non-graphic, DOS program.

Also the mushroom database goes into the field with me an my picking
basket.  Try to do that with a desktop.

Thanks Bryce.
