Yes, but remember. 58% of all glass is only made for windows. which is a damn shame, really.

Contact your local retailer and ask that they use more lightbulb compatible glass.



BTW: I'm having intermittent socket failures with my lightbulb and am having to work using windows, HELP ME!!!

Floppy, I am afraid that the customers weren't overly pleased with that full-body suit, so its manufacturers came up with a new one (that works and looks absolutely stunning): http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c4...5/foilsuit.jpg

And some find a foil suite not enough, even taking to the trees for extra protection

Can I run a window at the same time as a light bulb? I don't want to loose all of my light sources. and is a Windows light compatible with light bulb light? So I can run them at the same time.

There's a paradox here: the light that comes through Windows is free, but you have to pay for Linux light bulbs and the electricity that powers them. Very puzzling, eh?

And the Windows light could be described as open source

Ppl,
Balmer has already done it in an agreement with Novell!

Not patenting, but you know, he claims he can sue us Linux Light Bulb users.

Microsoft DayLight comes in four versions:
Dull and Foggy
Cloudy
Hazy Sunshine
Bright Sunshine
The licences cost from 150 to 500, and a new licence must be purchased if moving house. See EULA for full details.

actually, what you need to convert you house are light_bulbs made with wine, instead of the glass used from windows. who knows-maybe the linux-wine light_bulb will be superscribed by doctors within the next ten months.
