Understood, we tend to use XFS whenever we can, both on NFS servers, general 
service machines and clusters (though our PPC64 SLES9 cluster is running JFS 
because AutoYAST wouldn't build nodes with XFS).

They've got to get the money to host the website and put bread on the table 
for the people who do the work somehow.  They compromise by making those 
weekly issues freely available after a short space of time and almost all of 
their daily news articles are free from the moment they're published.

Understood, and my thanks for that as a Debian (and Kubuntu) user.

Chris
