In reply to Ad6/ROL:

I just had the chance to take a look at a brand new A9home a friend just purchased.

I must say that it is amazing what you get: ArtWorks Viewer 1.74 dated mid 2004, NetSurf dated November 2005, no Printers and not even OmniClient to ensure you do not connect to some Windows PC. A nice surprise was in the Welcome directroy where a r/o SparkFS was hidden. And please do not expect much of use inside the Docs directory ... unless you're into reading the change log e.g.

Considering the price tag I think everybody can expect that the free software included is at least reasonably current ... and not well over two years old with newer much more versatile versions of the software being available for download! And to still not deliver Printers ... rediculous!
