What would rock would be if the choice was given as the first step of the
installation. If you choose olwm as the installer look, then you end up
with Open Look as your default WM. Same with the others.

Questions are good... very good.

Something that I hope TerraSoft Inc (I would prefer to call you guys YDL Inc
;) will publish soon are benchmarks between MacOS and YDL. Not for the
Wintel/Lintel crowd (who would argue that any linux would be better than
MacOS) but for those who are currently using Mac hardware and want a good
solution without moving to Intel....

Sound reasonable?
