Oh, come on, lots of users do have copies out there; it has been shipping
in the UK for a couple of months, and your prices bear no resemblence to
those academics at least actually pay (and you are posting from an
academic address). We know: we have paid for ours.

I don't think unsubstantiated S-PLUS knocking on R-help is helpful.
