For those of you who are wondering about the freeware status read the "USE AND EVALUATION PERIOD." section of the license agreement (during install). According to the current license agreement it free for personal, home use. If you want to use it at work, you should pay for it (after an evaluation period). One can assume that since they are creating a Style Builder application that they will probably sell that product. In order to make their Style Builder product more desirable, it would make sense to give away the Styles XP product. This will allow everyone to implement the Styles created by Style Builder. I think it is a brilliant marketing decision (if my hypothesis is correct :).

This is the best IM app I have seen! You can even be logged in with all of your screen names at the same time! Best of all, it appears to have most of the functionality that made me like AIM. When I loged on for the first time, it even downloaded my buddy list from the AIM network (although Trillian doesn't send updates back to the server, yet)! As long as AOL doesn't block use of this app (as they did with the MSN Messanger), you have just found a big fan! :)

For those who are wondering about the crossplatform possibilities for .NET. Ximian (maker of Ximian GNOME) is working on an open source (.NET) CLI implementation for Linux. I don't recall where I read this now... but I believe someone is working on a CLI implementation for BSD (unfortunately I can't find proof of that right now :).
"Ximian announced the launch of the Mono project, an effort to create an Open Source implementation of the .NET Development Framework. Mono includes: a compiler for the C# language, a runtime for the Common Language Infrastructure and a set of class libraries." -- [source: go-mono.com]

For Windows users... StartupMonitor prompts you every time an application attempts to register itself to run at start up. It is freeware, and available in FileForum. http://fileforum.betanew...tail.php3?fid=947207877

So are we to understand that this senator wants Microsoft to include alternatives to XPs built in applications during the install? If so, what are the guidelines for which software gets included on the CD? Do we only include freeware, or do we also include commercial demos or shareware? How many different "Notepad" replacements do you want installed on your system by default?
Exactly how much room does this Senator believe a CDs has anyway? :)
