Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Don't believe their site...

I've got 2 Win machines, one Mac (OS9) and a Linux machine all running
happily off a Linksys Router connected to Blueyonder. It's just normal

Just because they don't *support* it doesn't mean that it won't work. It
just means that if you screw up, they won't help. Which is fair enough.

Dunno [oh, great answer...!]
It's a lot more stable, and you can do a heck of a lot more with it:
it's nice to be able to do web stuff and preview changes immediately
through Apache.

Some things don't work though, and won't work for a while: namely
scanning. No sign of RealPlayer, and Eudora is [seemingly] stuck at

USB support is much improved and pretty seamless. Quake III runs v.
well, as does BBEdit. :-)
Overall though, it's about 95% finished.

Not sure how well it'll play with broadband though. Anyone got
blueyonder?? I'm considering it, but their web site sayeth no X. :-|
