Wow, I sold the reviewer his Debian CD!

I was hoping for a good review, but this is even better news.
It should be part of a 16 page feature on Linux distributions which
is the cover article.  This might mean we were awarded this award above
other distributions ;-)  I'll try to buy the magazine and find out.

The magazine has been a bit MS centric in the recent past, but I think
it's just a reflection of their readers, and now they are reflecting
that their readers are curious about Linux.  It has a very large
distribution here.

An announcement is a good idea.  We are getting a steady stream of press
which is always good to have.
