I can go with that. However, Nero are making out that NeroLinux is free
(large font "FREE"), and it's not! Playing semantic hop-scotch with
Windoze Nero doesn't alter the fact that you must pay for NeroLinux -
it's not free. Why not be upfront and just say so. I own a lot of
proprietary software, and have no qualms about paying for good stuff.
My gripe is about their dishonesty.

Windows isn't the answer. Windows is the question. The answer is NO!
I use, recommend and support OS/2 Warp and eComStation.
