another way of looking at the same thing might be - let the buyer
beware. There are UPS systems such as APC that have software and would
work out of the box and there are 3rd party programs such as APCUPSD
which are terrific and easy enough. Of course, you would have to check
on these things before you purchase.

also, there is the notion that the net gain is zero. You gave up and
thus no one learned anything at all from your efforts or from the
efforts given on the list to help you get it working. If you were to
persevere instead of giving up, document what you did for the next
person who follows in your footstep, Linux would probably benefit and
the driver db in the 'nut' project could probably include your hardware.
Alas, you surrendered.
