Microsoft put PR before doing the Right Thing.

The Right Thing should *ALWAYS* done.

Besides I think the current Indy installer is quite good. Not as good,
IMHO, as the one that comes with SuSE 5.2, but then I've been using SuSE
5.2 for about a year, so I'm probably biased. I'm also finding redhat a
little difficult to get used to, esp. working out what the hell it does on
start up. But I like the way it echos all the successes/faliures to the
screen in green/red, that rocks.

[Did I miss it or does Indy not come with ssh and pgp/gpg? worth
