:zz,biz: Importance-- and danger-- of a Windows distribution


Your reply suggests that the Linux source distribution
 is the important thing.  If we get a distributable for Windows,
 that's the ball game-- we're on our way to Product!
 And many thousands of people will try it, even in its
 current state.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that if it contains a virus, I am INFINITELY
 liable financially, since we don't have a Xanadu corporation.

Marlene and I will probably set one up in May.

In the meantime, if we DO get a Windows distribution,
 DON'T SEND IT OUT until you've looked it over VERY
 carefully.  Indeed, until we have the protection of a corporation.


If his arrangement works, will you be able to continue
 modifying the ZZ source without having to redo it or
 go back to him?  This would be crucial (especially with
 the virus issue what it is).

Thanks and WOW!
