Rite... this is *exactly* what I was thinking! Whats to stop doing an
install from
your *paid* disks... then if the client is interested Im qiute sure they
have no objection of forking over a measly $70!
Cripe! if an real client objected to dumping $70 for a server envioriment..
wouldnt guess them to have much $$ for IT support!!

My main shock is that it is Professionally produced and says "eval" what do
think that means....? If you *decide* to pay for it?? How the heck is Suse
supposed to stay in business? Further Id guess if it dosnt meet particullar
"needs" then obiviously move on to find the |-->FREE<--| os which survival
based on if the user decides to pay for it.

I suggest doing the demos from your paid disks
