Frees software and food
Go to the supermaket, you'll find 1500 products
to eat, you'd survive eating 15 of those
products, why do you need the rest 1485 ?
Go to the shoe shop. 250 different shoes, any
would serve you to walk with no bare feet.
Go to the disco, 350 different girls...
You're proposing communistic planning, 5-yearly,
a la "romanian".
Free soft is a gift, gifts are welcome. As simple
as that. You can't demand anything to someone
that's granting you a gift.
Worst licences day by day
I think that we'll living a strange process , we are experiencing greedier and greedier companies with closer and closer licenses and at the same time we're having more and more open source material... It's like if the commercial world and the people were being more radical in their way the deal with computers. The companies want to user-slaves and users just a product.
Obviously, this is a clear example of the current attitude of IT corporations. We'll have to endure more of this... Don't buy Borland,... poor RMS was right.
