 Today there is no competent mass market small office
 lan product, neither a source secret product nor a free software
 product. We will argue that the correlation of forces favors free
 software in the coming drive to lower Operating Costs and raise
 Return on Investment.

 I will also install from scratch a Debian system in
 two different ways, one of which requires 
 exactly three keystrokes.  The author of the three stroke
 install utility will heckle throughout.
