Yes I know this is an off topic discussion but I just feel like I need to
set the record straight.

Cost of Win95+MSWord System:
Win95 60
MSWord 160

Cost of Linux+FrameMaker System:
Linux 0
FrameMaker 150

Err, me thinks FrameMaker wins hands down. (Please note that this is
using FrameMaker binaries from SCO Unix).

Also note that prices are _very_ rough and in pounds sterling not US $.
