	In that vein, it might be worth mentioning to said reporter that Linux
can now be had preinstalled from many of the major OEMs, and there are quite a
few companies springing up that specialize in Linux workstations.  Most of the
preinstallations are on servers, but it's easy enough to find workstations if
one picks up a copy of Linxu Journal or something.

	(speaking of which, LJ got a surprising number of flames for last
month's Monty Python parody in which they ran a cover of a nude man at a
workstation in a field of flowers)
