Right. Then I don't understand the point of your statement that 44,100
is a very low figure? Compared to what? All future images that you don't
know what software they're going to have? And how can you say they're
going to roll out "five times" that number of machines and not specify a
time frame? It doesn't make sense, at least to me.

Seems that 100% of all new images for 2008 will be shipped with OOo
(which will be a total of 44,100 machines). Which is a great
achievement. How is that a very lowball figure compared to the number
they will ship in total?

I don't understand that statement, unless you're suggesting that future
machines post 2008 will not have OOo?
