Logo and text - revised

Here is another way! I deleted a lot and tried to get to the point.

Waiting for bricks or what you think.

<H2>Independence Linux: The user's revolt</H2>

<p>We want Linux to become <STRONG>the</STRONG> dominant operating system.  But
this will not happen if Linux continues to be a system for an elite, such as, a
system that depends upon the past, UNIX. Linux has made significant inroads
towards being an operating system for the desktop and the
personal computer, but not enough. Indy Linux, with help from many, can be the
OS of choice.</p>

Independence is <STRONG>not</STRONG> a commercial distribution. Indy is
striving to be a distribution which is built by volunteers who are willing
to shun UNIX and think Linux.</p>



<li>UNIX was never designed to be used at home.

<li>UNIX has not considered that users would use dial up connections.

<li>UNIX forgets we do not keep our computers on 24 hours a day.

<li>UNIX needs experienced system administrators.



<li>Linux can be used as a server, linked to many computers,
including ones that have Windows or NT as their operating system.

<li>Linux does not need a systems administrator to fix problems.

<li>Linux is not expensive.

<li>Linux can be used as the home computer.

<li>Linux can be used as the game computer.


<H3>The Independence distribution</H3>

<p>Independence is free. Indy is designed for users by users.
We built it because we feel Linux does not need to be UNIX. We think that
other distributions have depended on the UNIX mold, which has held down the
growth of Linux.<BR>

You can find more info about Indy in the
<A HREF="/distribution/"> distribution page</A>.

<p>Independence is volunteer work, we will progress faster if
<STRONG>you</STRONG> participate.  If you believe that Linux users are
different and need <A HREF="/thinklinux.shtml"> <STRONG>Linux</STRONG>
solutions.</A>  <BR>

<H3>Volunteer!</H3> If you want to be a user in the front lines, who want Linux
to spread then <A HREF="/subscribing/">join us!</A>
