a product. Addressing such email to all the manufacturers at the same
time should create some incentive to be the first to come out with such
I'm thinking that a short form letter that would be available on this
list and perhaps a web page to show how many linux users feel that they
could use such a machine.if every body who uses this list sends a copy
to all the manufacturers of such machines.
Imagine the effect if such an email letter were sent from hundreds, if
not thousands of
linux users all over the world arriving at the offices of the
manufacturers at the same time.
Anybody interested? Suggestions? Or is it too late?
