Funny that you mention Future Shop. The other day I went into
Future Shop and ask them if they had a Linux-OS CD. The guy looked at
me in a strange way saying: "No we don't have that".
"Are you going to order some and when are you going to have them?"
"We are never going to have them"
Since this is the info list, is there something I don't know about
MS owns FS or what? Who owns Future Shop anyway?
-Don't describe me their tactics, I know them. I am just curious about who
owns it. I went in there the other day because I couldn't find the CD
elsewhere. I downloaded my OS over the net but a CD is great to install it
on your friends' PCs!
