If you object to keeping this on the mailing

Oberon0.Dsk and rawrite.exe are available.
Anyone can get these files and make the 
installer diskette using a conventional 
system on a PC at home.  MacOS and Linux 
can also copy Oberon0.Dsk to a diskette.

The system can be installed from the 
diskette.  The only cost is the effort.  
How can this be a paradox?

the parts for the new car you want to put together.

ETH does not charge for Oberon or Aos.  The 
analogy is to be given a new Volkswagon and 
a new BMW.  Salvaged parts from old Chevys 
and Fords are readily available but replacing 
engine, transmission & etc. in the new cars 
with old Ford & Chevy parts would be unwise.
