Interesting news. Billy boy isnt going to like this. This
has a much better chance of grabbing market share from windows than
when the McNealy circus tried to sell "java desktops" at Walmart

I received a Sybase Linux CD along with the SUSE Linux CD i bought
at Best Buy stores for $65. If you can preload SQLBase and TD along
with SUSE, it might generate some interest. But i hope you stabilize
TD 5.0 first and give more attention to usability/documentation before
you try something like this.

Thanks Everyone

They've been selling SUSE & sometimes RedHat on server class machines for
some time.
