Sure. No need to explain how you derive data.
Unfortunately if you don't explain you don't have credibility.
If you post in a public forum you'll be accountable. It's the law.

I think the rebate plan is complex and most people are not finding a
$79 price tag too expensive considering the price of a video game.

Yes, that is it. The south is smarter. Traditionally the south has
been the more enlightened and creative segment of the USA. Of course
in the backwards Santa Clara Valley, WARP is selling and very popular.
We just are behind the South. (sarcasm).
We have too many programers and computer literate people in the Santa
Clara valley for MS BS to stick very long. MS has just about run of of
credibility in this Valley. You guys would not last in this more
competitive and diverse computing environment. Stay in the South.

I perfer to let the professionals tell us about WARP shipments. The
Dale-Greg survey is utter nonsense. Who would listen to two MS
advocates tell us about WARP sales? Go back to your BETA's.
Send mail to Dale Ross and ask him to stop advocating WIN95 in OS/2 advocacy.
Keep the newsgroup focused on WARP and OS/2.
