There was free beer at my friend's birthday party, the other day. Of course, it was at zero price relative to me, and I had extraneous expenses due to the cost of the present, travel and my time.Anyway, you make about as much sense as Richard Stallman when he said, "Linux is not free as in beer...". Maybe you can tell us where in the hell the free beer is, or the holy grail for that matter.
Well, you are equally guilty of not qualifying your statement that "Linux is not free."Linux is an operating system. A corporation can use Linux as a platform for IBM or Oracles product line, but as far as I know, you would have to go about that by getting a license from a Linux vendor, and enterprise Linux is expensive. You are paying for the service and support mostly, but also indemnification and buch of other bull crap.
