Wanna really know? If this is _really_ the LGPL, I believe this means Linux
just reached maturity as an end-user desktop system overnight.
Yes this may sound too enthusiastic, but most people I couldn't "sell" Linux
were worried that they couldn't run Word. We have compatibility; so users
can gradually start to realize the native Linux apps are better ;-) and
switch. If this is in Debian 2.0 it will sell like water. I'm serious - the
"sell" is not methaforical, people will look for it in the stores.
Is this stuff fast? [don't think so]
I walk the maze of moments...
