"ZaReason has a good tech staff led by Earl Malmrose, Cathy's
husband and CTO of ZaReason. The absence of licensing barriers
combined with Linux' flexibility means they can customize, clone,
and get systems out the door quickly. What a concept-- giving
customers what they want.
"Even weirder, they encourage you to do whatever you want with
your own stuff, like blow away the stock Linux and replace with it
something else, or open the case and poke at the innards. They even
include a screwdriver.
"My favorite part is there is no "Windows tax." You are not
forced to purchase a Windows license when you buy a system."
