I didn't see anyone volunteer a copy... so allow me. I am curious about
Lindows - I don't like their business model (which may suit Windows
buyers), but it has potential, can't be (legally) obtained any other
way AFAIK, and I'm an inveterate distro-tryer...

I can rarely make it to CLUG meetings, so I've saved enough pizza
contributions to afford a copy of APC (this month :-). I'll purchase a
copy as soon as I see it, make a copy of the Lindows CD, then dispatch
the original to CLUG.

It will be interesting to see if this edition of Lindows is as clever
as Knoppix, at least with auto-detection, configuration, and
installation (if any). The rest is just generic Linux, n'est-ce pas?
