Hahahahahahahahaha. This is the UK.

We don't have ISPs with clue. Linux users connect to Demon and lie to them about
what OS they have. (Mostly because Demon will issue us with fixed IP addresses.
So we don't have to mess around with DHCP.)

Other ISPs won't support systems as radically non-standard as Windows NT.

We're in "it comes on a CD, installs IE5 and you can have 5 email addresses"
territory here. You mention SMTP to them and they boggle. As far as they're
concerned POP is what a balloon does near a spike.

The ones that will deal with people who might be using Linux charge more than I
want to be able to afford.

Well, yeah, *I* can - but this might limit the market a bit... it complicates
further getting OpenGL stuff installed on a user's machine.
