Who cares? free software *must* be copied freely.
Many would buy the "original" anyway, to donate to the 
project. Well, at least *I* will. What about a poll on the 
gnubg homepage?

Hey, my idea was the one of a live distro too.
All the above, but in a disc who can also be run direcly 
from the drive, without any installation issue for the 
newbies, the lamers, and all of those who wants to bring a 
very strong backgammon opponent around in their pocket, 
ready to run from about every PC.

Come on, go for it! It can also be a great way to spread 
gnubg. The more people knows about it, the more can help 
it's development in some way (and in some way, GNU itself 
can be helped too).

BTW, I want to improve the italian translation, if it is 
stalled and nobody maintains it. But that's another topic, 
and I'll start another thread soon. ;)
