I'll add my two cents to the below.
In the battle over productivity in my workplace (computer helpdesk) the boss
has removed even the two windows games released with the package. And there
is definitely no internet access. However for the needs of communication
with other business we have email access to the outside world.
I appreciate the information bulletins on the list. It helps provide
material with which I can write articles for the socialist paper I
contribute to. If these don't appear via email and only on a ftp site I
can't access them.
I know I am only talking about myself, but there are lots of potential
computer worker subscribers who would only have email access at work.
