Thursday evening, I visited the software page at amazon.com. I found
the following rankings on the list of the top ten sellers (updated
hourly):
#2 SuSE Linux 8.0 Pro
#5 Win XP Home Upgrade
#10 Win XP Pro Upgrade

Checked again Sunday morning and found that Microsoft was offering an
incredible $40 rebate on the home edition, $45 on the pro edition.
Coincidence, or does MS closely watch these sites? Despite the MS
rebates, SuSE is still on the list, #7 as of a few minutes ago.
