Oh, sure. The spin will be about how "Big Pharma" is trying to suppress the "truth" about herbal remedies. So a report like this will be given roughly the same deference as the John Birch Society gives a White House press release. If it's not an out-and-out lie (to them), then it's a backhanded concession that they were right all along, because, hey, look how scared Big Pharma must be, to do this study to disprove our moonbat claims!

Actually, Mepis was the first distro I tried. For whatever reason, no matter how much I (figuratively) banged my head against the wall to get it to work, I, a mere end-user, just couldn't. Ubuntu was my last shot at a Linux distro and it's been golden.

Even bytes get lonely for a little bit.
