Re: Be Careful What You "Believe"

At least attempt to comprehend what I stated before trying to discuss
it.

I stated that the Linux ecosystem in 2007 was estimated at around $45
billion, that means that the companies listed on
http://www.linux-foundation.org/en/Members are making about $45 billion
annually currently, and that number is GROWING.

Sorry RedHat wasn't greedy enough for you, but the thing is, they
believe they shouldn't OWN the code and keep it to themselves. They make
their money from giving software away, then charging for SUPPORT. I'd
say they're a pretty large company considering that fact...

Anyways, please fix your e-mail client, mailing lists are supposed to be
orderly, your post started a new thread, thus making it hard to
follow... if you can't at least do that, don't expect anymore replies
from me.
