Mads,

The answer to the reason the live eval won't work is because people
can't feed off the free beer mentality...It sounds like to me it goes
like this...

" I can't get it for free, so I will pay M$ $129.00 for Windows because
I am too cheap to pay $30 for the personal edition of SuSE"

It's sad really..I wish the free beer people would dry up and blow
away...hell, I spend more the $30 a week on cigarette ($5.00 a pack in
California)...$30.00 for a whole OS and the ability to download 1000's
of packages doesn't really strike me as too much to ask so that people
who work hard can feed their families. *shrug*

Regards,
