I prefer to think of it as odd, different, unique, imparting a bit of 
character in a world of homogeneity, slightly suggestive of it's 
mixed ancestry, but not necessarily crazy.  It's not a significant 
problem for me, meaning, I suppose, that one can indeed get used to 
it.  To tell you the truth, I rarely think about it now. The slight 
inconvenience it poses for me seems well worth it because it's part 
of a powerful program that works well for me and is supported by its 
makers.  If that's your primary objection to NB, you've made a 
mountain out of a mole hill, in my opinion.
