42 [03:07] <pleia2> it still ships with proprietary codecs and binaries that aren't strictly legal to ship in the US (so Ubuntu can't), so I think there will still be a market 43 [03:07] <pleia2> not among professional users, but the typical mint userbase 44 [03:08] <philipballew> pleia2, were you wanting to put up all your posters and candy this year again?
