Legitimate question.  A feature comparison could be usefl.

I didn't read it as being under any "guise", and the message does contain
technical information (works under Windows, Linux users have to wait; it's
obviously not free).

Does your message mean we'll see no more Escapade announcements on
this list? That would be unfortunate, but by the same token, should
the EMS client become available in a Linux version, an announcement on
this list might be of interest to several of the readers.

It's certainly a more appropriate message than the perennial "why can't
this list use [mysql] in the header so I can filter my mail?" :-)
