In this case the company sent me an actual package with some nice stuff
in it. It was quite a thrill. The only other things I've gotten is one
donation to my paypal account (quite a surprise) and a tightly folded
one dollar bill sent to me in the mail with "thanks for cgywin (sic)"
scrawled on the envelope. That was my very first token of appreciation.
I still have the dollar bill in my desk.
For the record, I'd accept laptops, too. :-)
I'm pricing one of those out right now as my birthday present since Red
Hat doesn't seem to be inclined to upgrade my old Pentium laptop. I
keep hearing that the prices are coming down but unfortunately my
expectations are going up faster than the prices are going down. I know
that this is extremely off-topic but can anyone recommend a good quality
laptop which could dual boot linux and XP, 1600x1200 resolution, large
screen, 40+GB, 1.8+GHZ?
I'm looking at either a Sager or Toshiba (I like the eraser pointing
device) laptop currently.
This is so offtopic that private email is fine.
