Er, um, uh, I *think* you can get to it through the SSC linux news page, 
accessible through the linux.org main page.  (gotta love associative memory...

Wellll...  I posted a "list dead?" message last night and haven't gotten any 
replies or gotten the message back from the list.  OK, I just got a message, 
but it sure wasn't mine...  I'll chase those people down and try to get them

As far as the user getting the commerical stuff, I say stick with existing 
delivery methods, i.e. CompUSA, Egghead, etc.  Retail software is what is 
going to make this project, not the base distrib.  Hate to say it, but it's 
true.  This project, as important as it is, is a catalyst, not a be-all 

> YAIP: don't forget WINE.
Oh, almost forgot... ;-)  WINE/WABI will allow us to run "legacy" apps (as we 
should take to calling them) under SEUL.  WINE is great, WABI is better, 
neither supports Win32 properly yet.  That's a big drawback.  The GNU 
windows-api-32 stuff is a step in the right direction, but without some major 
support the WINE project is going to get stuck without support for Win95 apps.
