Hi Richard,

I hope I did not appear cold in my previous message. It was no intended to
appear this way.

I don't proofread properly, so I left out the word "you" before "Windows". I
placed my reply too far below the text it was referring to, which discussed

It is one of the (if not just "the") most reliable Linux distributions. Els
got it installed quite recently as well.

It is the next version of Windows (formerly called Longhorn) which is due to
be released in September 2006 if I recall correctly. It is currently in
beta 1, or maybe alpha.

*smile* I know, I know...

Brad speaks a lot about public domain too... in fact, his page on copyrights
is almost enough to pay his bills owing to advertisements.


And his _very_ recent mentioning of the income aspect:
