Good job they aren't giving them out to friends then. I was lucky -
because I've run from LiveCD often, I thought it was taking much too
long to start the live demo, and cancelled. Then I got the message
saying that the install hadn't finished!

I've sent texts and emails to those who I have given a copy to - just
glad I didn't give any out at the demo day.

Yes, people should have backups - but that doesn't mean we can wipe
their hard drives for them!
