When you go with Cheapbytes you also don't get the one-user license copy
of MetroX and BRU that RedHat bundles.  Not that I use either one....

(Isn't this more of a c.o.l.misc question than a .setup question?)


1. Complete idiots guide to linux

I bought the book called The complete idiots guide to linux for $20.  It
seems to come with a full version of both Caldera 1.3 and Star Office.
Other than the email support you get with the $60 caldera package, can
someone please explain the difference.  I had a full version of 1.1 a year
or so ago and I think I got basically the same support with newsgroups.
Their "support" didn't seem like it was really all that great.

I understand that Caldera needs to make money so they can keep upgrading the
package for us, but this seems like a big difference in price for basically
the same thing.

Please let me know what you think about this.
