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.
