It costs £10 to get your sim card from them but you get £10 worth of credit for any calls or data you use beyond the free ones.
The only real advantage of one over the other that I've found is that the free VMWare Player seems to pause traffic on the network connection every IIRC 2 minutes for about 5s. Not a huge problem but was something I noticed when trying to stress test some code. BTW, I was running Linux Mint as the client and Windows 7 as the host if that might have been the reason. When I tried on VirtualBox everything just worked without any trouble.
. These days, they've done away with much of the blood guilt that would kill your family
Have you got any sources to back this up? It doesn't have to be particularly authoritive as NK is so restrictive this would be hard to get.

This gives you the benefit of Debian rolling releases and I found that my wifi worked out of the box just as it does on Ubuntu based distros. XFCE uses GTK 2, and should eventually move to GTK 3 when that API stabilises. This seems to be the best option for me for now, although I'm keeping an eye on Cinnamon.
I'd like to know how they define broadband. Is it >2Mbit/s or >10Mbit/s? What data limits are they comparing? When they compare pricing does that include phone lines if they are a mandatory pre-requisite to broadband access?
Google seems to do a good job of detecting spelling errors and automatically updating it's dictionary and of course it also shows you websites where that word is used. I don't really see what Wordnik provides.
