[FYI] Is Free Software Worth The Cost?


"In short, I'm not against software being given away. I just

 software, consider its cost to the software industry."

mit freier Software!

 community, which have proven so productive in the development of the
 need to be recognized, honored, and upheld." -- Tim O'Reilly
