Fair point Dave ... but what isn't illegal nowadays? As a Linux user ... you of all people should know the greatness of getting 99% of Linux Distros for free (that 1% being Suse, of course) ... Are you honestly telling me that you have not done one illegal thing in your life? I'm sure you have. Hell, everything evolving around Microsoft is illegal nowadays. Taking your shut down button on Win XP and placing it as desktop button is illegal. Just downloading one, single, solitary song from the internet for free is illegal. Copying music CD's is illegal ... so is copying DVD's. And you have not done ONE of those in your life on the internet? You don't have ONE copy of an OS that you have to pay for? You don't have one illegal copy of a CD? Or DVD?
I think you get my point Dave ... With all due respect, I'll admit. It is illegal. But at the same time, it is saving a (reasonably active) member from having to pay an extra $50 or whatever just to reinstall Win 98.
