So IIUC, an AOL subscriber could continue to be an AOL subscriber while
using a Linux box and:
* still connect to the Internet via AOL (I guess this is the one I'm
most uncertain of)
* read and send mail via AOL (oops, maybe I'm uncertain about that
* exchange mail with AOL and non-AOL members (anybody can do this)
* IM with AOL members
* IM with non-AOL members (I'm not sure this can be done in any case)
Do AOL'ers get a "home" web page/site for their use? I would assume he
could still change it from a Linux browser?
What else do we need to consider with respect to AOL'ers?
