Am I the only one who thinks that those abandonned softwares (specially those from
Apple, i.e. NCU, NBU et all) should be kept in? Specially after the way that Apple
abandonned us high and dry? I have all those softwares personnally, but I'm thinking
about the person who buys a used MessagePad that comes barebone, without anything.
If that person would email-me to get NCU, I would gladly send her a copy. Now, I
would prefer re-directing her to an actual website, as this request came quite often
over that past few months.

What others do think?
