I think if there is an open source application comparable to a
proprietary one that the CD should include it instead. But this is for
the Mozilla Foundation to make more money off of the CD--if I buy a CD
and register a trial of McAfee that came with it, I believe the Mozilla
Foundation would get some money out of it.
Sorry about the double post Brian.
