Kieth its positively brilliant!!  I can see it now, a ground swell of
users asking MicroSoft why the little bird icon isn't included with
Windows.  After all they found it neccesary to include a browser.  My
devious little mind isn't interested in inflicting MicroSoft with damage,
it is much more satisfying to get MicroSoft to do our bidding, putting
its resources at our disposal.

Kieth deserves great credit for including Linux on machines and having
the foresight to do it in such a manner that does not give users a
negative impression of Linux.  It is important because it proves it can
be done!!!  

Seul will do well to emulate Kieth.
