I thought we had a better solution for the linux vs other free software choices
- didnt Frank C come up with a wonderful statement that summed this up?
Frank can you remember what it was?
The constitution as posted to this list - did not incorporate Frank\'s
I think we had a bit of a dispute as to what David T suggested as SOP - as it
could have given rise to the use of shareware software for the win platform, I\'m
sure we thought that a statement of this was a bit redundant because in order to
run shareware and freeware stuff available for windows, you needed to have a lic
copy of the O/S. (This is what I can recall from that discussion - does anyone
else want to add something).
(who thinks the current SOP could be made more clear and shouldn\'t preclude the
use of other free software solutions)
