But I don't criticise Linspire for what they do.  They are providing a
service and somebody is obviously buying it :-)  As for those
proprietary bits... I'll have them thank you :-)  Yes, I would much
prefer that I could use proper open source bits.  But, in the meantime
I want to be able to use the graphics card etc that I bought.  So, if
I have to sleep with the devil then so be it.  Hey, I could be dead
next week...
Don't take it to the tip recycle it via the Freecycle(r) Network.
