Heh, heh.

Note that Red Hat 5.0 came out on December 1st.

Note also that in the Linux Counter's survey (23000 responses)
3.68% reported their source as a Red Hat CD whereas, for instance,
41.05% (including me) installed by ftp.

In case anybody was wondering, Linux is huge now.
You won't see $$$$$$ publicity campaigns in PC Magazine, but it's huge.
