but, how do you detect if the user installed from a magazine provided

really really doesn't want a load of 'content' at his/her download

. . .

if a static, on hard drive popup (in whatever browser) _offered_ to
connect to everything you can think of, then the user has _choice_

[what if this new user is running away from the dark side because,
no choice, s/he is forced to download piles of stuff everyday . . . ]

so, i vote for an upgraded, installed, static, greeter with the option
to click to broadband, flat rate magic. ymmv


Even in Western Europe where ADSL is rapidly going out of fashion, there
are still many not-that-remote locations where dial-up or slowish WLAN
to the next village is the only option.
