How about putting in as well that those CD-ROM manufacturers are at last
allowed to include the non-free directory too? It was really a *BIG*
disappointment upon reception of the latest InfoMagic "Linux Developers
Resource" when i had to see that the software from it was included in the
CD set as *.rpm's, *.tgz's and source but not as Debian's *.deb packages!
Why is I-Connect obviously allowed to include non-free on their disk and
not e.g. InfoMagic who are selling more or less an image of the primary
Debian FTP server as well?
