Not a good way to do that, Moon.  Where do you think Warren Togami comes 
from?  You did notice that his email address ends in "@redhat.com", right?

The fact that Red Hat has stayed true to its Free Software roots (thus 
making CentOS possible) makes choosing Red Hat a no-brainer for me.  I 
don't see Novell sponsoring this list.  I don't see an 
educational/LTSP-ifyed version of SuSE Linux that is totally Free 
Software.  But I sure do see a Red Hat version of it.  It's called 
K12LTSP/K12Linux, specifically designed for--that's right--thin 
clients.  And Canonical's doing the same with Edubuntu.

Please remember to give credit where it's due.

Do you GNU <http://www.gnu.org>?
Microsoft Free since 2003 <http://www.cmosnetworks.com>--the ultimate 
antivirus protection!
