I know they don't have to make the binaries available, but I really
dislike the twisted choice of words. They imply it isn't available now
due to a need for continued work on their part. Surely the delay is
purely for perceived commercial gain?
Also, since Novell's involvement, hasn't the delay between commercial
release & ftp release increased significantly? It seems to have gone
from 4-6 weeks to three months :/
