I wish I had been "on the ball" and started writing sooner.

When the next, interesting, free giveway hits I will finish what I've started, and I will win.

Mwhahaha !

Laugh with me !

I guess I have to keep using Mandrake then ;) I hope he's happy with his prize.

Btw, Eugenia do you tell people if their articles are rejected or do you just keep quiet? Because if you won't use them then people might want to publish them elsewhere.

They usually are not rejected, but they do get a response from us immediately after we receive their email.

I was asking because the guy who wrote the Xandros review a few days back was kinda surprised that it was published since he though you wouldn't. And I never got a clear answer about my article either.

So in other words, unless you say otherwise in the first reply you will publish it?

The Xandros review knew it was going to be published. What he didn't know was where to exactly send it.

> And I never got a clear answer about my article either

Which one was your article exactly? I have a huge backlog here, please email me with the title of your article or the name of the .zip file you sent.

Congratulations

So maybe now we can wait for a review of Xandros in SPARC64?

OK, seriously, congratulations Tony, please keep on!
