       A minor point from me: if you're buying, do you think that the 
political aspects of ensuring that (say) PC World get a regular 
<caching!> of the cash registers for Linux products are worthwhile? 
While I don't visit the place regularly (except to see what's in the 
"Manager's Specials" pile, i.e. returned goods), I noticed that Linuxes 
disappeared off the shelves about the time that Xecerable-P came out, 
but it's back now (Mandrake, SuSe, RedHat, one copy of Caldera).
       As for which distro: I've used both SuSE 7.1, several Mandraken 
and RedHat. I'm agnostic.
