Maybe a group of us should get together and sell an installation for
£100 plus with a full support package included (that's what we are doing
now anyhow).  Even better if we negotiated a great deal on hardware with
no OS installed, and sell complete PC packages.  We'd probably make
easier and better inroads into the market by doing that than by giving
the stuff away.

You're right - folk don't understand the philosophy.
