       In the recent MacWEEK article proclaiming the May 13th
availability date for System 7.0, one of the interesting things I
noticed was the statement that System 7.0 would -not- be available via
online information services.

       Of course, one automatically assumes services like Compuserve,
America Online and such.  This makes automatic sense (at least to me)
- the System 7.0 distribution set is likely to be -huge-, far too much
for downloading via 1200/2400 baud (and 9600 baud is just barely
coming around at Compuserve).

       But what about the ftp archives that Apple maintains?  Are
they included in this pronouncement?  Will System 7.0 be available via
anonymous ftp, or will System Software >= 7.0 no longer be present in
the archives?  (Something that ought to make the bloody lawyers happy,
but that'd be about it.)

       Larry?  Dean?  Anyone?
