[ic] ZdNet Review Of Interchange...

I agree with Steve. It's very rarely that anything from Ziff Davis does
anything about Linux software so I think it's a big accomplishment. I think
the Windows users will be smart enough to relazie free adds a few points to
the list, not to mention it has more backend options than most carts out
there, to bad they tested it with Oracle instead of the buit-in or MySQL.
Good or Bad I think it's nice to see what other people think of Interchange,
it helps make it a better product.
