Why Linux Should Not Get a Free Ride

Filed under
Linux

I love Linux, I love FLOSS. I love the ideas behind them, and what drives the community. I love that Linux Distro’s are more user friendly than their competitors. I love how they work, I love how much better the kernel is than anything else out there.

Certainly A Free Product Needs a Break?

Often when someone critiques a linux distro in a forum a retort along the lines of “well if you want $X or $Y you can pay for Windows, you get $distro for free…”

Wrong. Right there the Linux community states clearly “we are not good enough, and like some knock off product you should expect to get what you pay for, or go get the real thing.”
