Thank you, that's what I'm trying to say.

If you don't like the term "toy around" then maybe "take it for a test drive" would be better. And you can't do that with a Live DEMO CD.

I takes more than 15mins for me to select my favorite distro, I like to edit files, move things around, change the decors.

$149 to be in a "select group" of eCS users? Well, I'm in way better group that don't charge that much.
