Hi Ico,

> there

Just to recap, the original cover art featured a synthesis of Tux and
the famous portrait of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara by Alberto Korda. Reason -
both are black and white icons with three letter names. I thought it was
amusing, and only very mildly subversive. Is free software
revolutionary, in the broad sense of the word? I believe it is.

However, some of the US-based contributors felt that this modified image
would cause trouble for their careers, at the educational institutions
where they work. Yes, really, 45 years after the Bay of Pigs disaster.
So the image was changed but the title stayed, becoming somewhat
orphaned from the cover concept.

> Perhaps we should reevaluate the title and/or subtitle?

I personally don't care what it's called - it's the music that matters.

Cheers!

Daniel
