SOT has used spammish methods before. I say spammish, because both
times (including this) I've received email from them they've tried to
conceal their spam as something else. The first time was somewhere
between spam and a friendly contact - I have not decided. In this
case, however, email seems to be unsolicited, unwanted commercial

The distribution of SOT, Best Linux, is a common RPM-based
distribution in Finland - especially among the beginners as it's very
easy to install.

I have met some people who work for SOT. Nice people, I think, but
(some of) their marketing methods are suspect. Unless SOT gives an
acceptable explanation I do know one distro I'll never use.
