I feel also it is not ok that people, who spend their spare time to
contribute *without* getting money for that, get treated without
respect. Persoanlly I read Christian's post as an insult, but I'm sure
he didn't want to be so rough.

About spins:
I think we should go for 3 products, spins are not really a product.
In my opinion, (main desktop) spins should still exist under the
"Workstation" product. The others are more 'remixes' in my eyes.
