    Why bother?

    None of us "religous" types have ever advocated anything of the sort.
Once again, you Lemmings have to resort to blatant lies in order to make
a point.

    The beauty of a gratis LiveCD is that you can "try before you buy"
with no muss, no fuss and no risk. I said the same thing, here in the
same place, a long time ago: we are not out for "world domination" if
someone finds Linux genuinely unsuitable for whatever reason that's
not a big deal. They try it. They move on if that's the case. Perhaps
they will try it again some day or not.

    "Linux Corp" isn't going to go out of business next year if it 
doesn't ship X million units. Free Software simply doesn't work 
that way. It doesn't have to.
