   Free software conventionally runs under U*IX, and your neighbor isn't
   in that market.  You'd get a better reaction if you mentioned my
   desires to a linux user who does consulting or runs their own

Alright, Brian, you are beginning to bug.

What is it exactly that you want?  No equivocating, no fence-sitting,
no devil's advocate.

Just say what you want to say, and then stop talking.
