Free Software has *never* been about cost. It is about the freedoms to use, study, and modify the software. During the early years, the GNU project ran on profits from selling EMACS and the GNU GPL is specifically worded to allow commercial distribution of the software licensed under it. Licenses which do not allow commercial distribution are not DSFG-free. I suggest against using toner or ink jet cartridges that are not certified by the printer manufacturer since my experience has shown them to be inferior products. Most often, they over-saturate the page leading to streak, smears, or even splotches and lower effective DPI. Refilled / recycled cartridges are a different story. It depends on the refill method, but they usually work just as well as new cartridges. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
