Subject Re: Does there need to be a default web container?
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2005 16:10:09 GMT
       How about something like dual-boot systems. If
you don't pick a container fast enough, one will be
chosen for you! We will be giving the user the choice,
but also making a decision which will be installed by
default. 

Cheers!
