I was in .. I think it was compusa.. that or bestbuy, but anyway.
I was there with my roomate, getting some stuff for the puter I'm going to build him, and what do I see?
Linux : Redhat 7.1 in a nice shiny box.
'Oh, that's neat' I say, and I look at the box.. basically what you download for free from so many sites.. nothing spectacular, no godly packages, or 10billion page books on the more obscure things about redhat or *nix and then I look at the pricetag..

Several hours later, when I'm awoken at a local hospital by a dead-sexy nurse, I throw up a few times, cry, and have a pounding headache..
Then I recal what had struck such horror and loathing in my heart..
The freakin' thing was like >= 80 bucks!
My god, do they think their's bill gates or someothing?
Let's see.. free OS, + can be a free download + $.50 - $1.25 for a blank cd (depending on quality of said cd) = $80.00
erm..
Now, my math skills only delve into trig, soe calculus, and what I used for physics in collage, but my sweet gods!!
and it's not like there was anything special, just a lot of money for no reason.
*sighs*
It's nice to see 7.1 out there in stores, but not for that price.
I think I'll stick to dl'ing it, or frequeting kernel.org

yeah well you would be surpised that there is a bug in the kernel with the released store version as well.. It doesn't work with the new nvidia drivers.
So right from the start after paying the 80$ you have to begin fixing their problems.
Good thing I downloaded it :grin:

LOL good one
But when you stop to think of it, you're getting about 5 CDs, a nice manual to get you started, and a few months of free phone support.. much more than MS would do for ya :grin:

Linux is going to be hard pressed to compete with ole bill unless it has loyal fans that are willing to pay for something that is linux based that generates revenue. If you like a distro support em .. get a hat, shirt, OS cd, support something. Whatever you can afford...
Support Tux , so Tux can keep supporting you with great stability and open source poweress !

ahh, but the government is starting to invest in opensource, and buy linux workstations.. I don't have the link to the article, but they have bought thousands of linux workstations, using office apps in KDE *retch*.. the article was showcased on slashdot, so if you look around the archivves, you can see things like that.. makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

thas pretty crazy. You know that local govt's are so far technologically behind and the us govt also appears to be the same way, but when it really comes down to it you have to wonder if they are equal or way ahead of us technologically.

The $80.00 package is either the server or "professional server" package. The basic workstation package costs around $30.00.
