Yeah, am kicking myself that I missed the talk, was too busy schmoozing with
the open source cognoscenti in the hallways :-p
I wouldn't be too worried about the software not being consumer friendly, it

anyway and write it off as a charitable donation... Have to support those
companies forwarding "the cause"!
