   Why the devil shouldn't they be able to sell ad space to Symantec?
(I presume that's what you mean.)

   There's no reason in the world at all they shouldn't put up a Gnome
desktop with icons offering AOL, Symantec, or Joe's Bar & Grill, so long
as a) AOL et al. give them (Dell) money, and b) AOL writes a version
which runs on GNU/Linux.  If enough folks buy these boxes, it may become
worth AOL's while.  After all, Dell's got to sell to Aunt Tillie, too,
if this thing's going to fly.
