ahhh, but that is only true if most or all users are paying.. and the fact
we get so many calls w/ in days of release for Suse to put the new stuff
up for free download , rather shows that not to be the case. ( some can't
wait a month for suse to make enough to keep going?? It's not a charity
after all )

Well,since that is the case, it's more likely than not the complainers are
not paying any of the freight. And Suse *IS* paying for the servers and
maintainers and all the folks people yell at for not being quick enough to
do as the complainer desires.

So, you see, unless you are willing to pick up a healthy chunk of the cost,
you are at their mercy, which fortunately is more bountiful than a lot of
the people who use this list.

Now, can this thread finally DIE !!!
