Re: [vox] Re: bandwidth

Time for me to throw my 2 cents worth in. I *like* the discussions on this
list, even when they move away from staple topics like M$ bashing and
Linux kernel problems. Like it has been said in this thread--we're people
discussing issues we feel are important. I frankly enjoy these "off-topic"
threads immensly (I'm not talking out of my ass here, eh Pete?) lol

I agree with Pavan--I think that it would be cool to have this in a
newsgroup style format. A thread like this one would be expandable and
contractable so that one could avoid reading it if one is not interested
in the subject--like Melissa and others who want pure "Linux only" talk.
