My goodness - some press!

Burrokeet is gradually gaining more attention, not bad since we haven't actually done a release yet (yes, the CVS code is very funcitonal, but it is still a pain to install).

Anyway take a look at this Linux Gazette article (http://www.linuxgazette.com/node/9627).

(we also get a mention in this antoher story at http://www.linuxgazette.com/node/9618\)
