Cold calling?


"Good morning sir, I was just wondering if you'd like to buy an OS. No, I'm afraid it won't run on your PC. Yes, that's right, you'll need another one. No, no your USB devices won't work with it. You'll have to replace them with slower, more expensive parallel ones. You will? Great! How much will it cost? Probably nothing.... you see, hang on, let me put you in touch with ROL. They'll ignore your emails anyway, so it won't cost you a thing!"
