Karlie,<br>I totally agree. I find it interesting that both Hal Varian and Bill Gates would both akin Microsoft to drugs and "addiction". With that said, I think it further fuels the need for some sort of LiveCD. I keep a laptop in my car with some DVD ISO's, as a pre-emtpive "Ambassador Survival Kit" of sorts until we have one available and one of the first things I do when I show someone the laptop (it seems no matter where you go, if you are using a laptop someone will come over and want to check it out or talk) is change the desktop to KDE and use a theme/style that is very familiar to them, and usually I get a "I had no idea Linux was like that" or some other such variant and then the influx of questions follows ("can you do this, that the other thing"). But the point to that being, most people started off on Windows, so they are "used" to it like that article says, since the "free dose" is supplied with the computer when they purchase it. I really hope an agreed upon LiveCD is available soon and glad I chose to swallow the right colored pill.
