Hi guys, good afternoon.
I received my Ubuntu Linux last month. In the Get Ubuntu link there are options "Download Ubuntu", "Buy Ubuntu on CD" and "Request free CDs".
I read something in Linux Dummies book that there are companies selling Linux distributions but requires that the software be distributed in source-code form, and stipulates that anyone may copy and distribute the software in source-code form to anyone else.
1. What's the reason why there's an option "Buy Ubuntu on CD" if Linux is distributed for free?
2. What's this "source-code form"?
3. Is/Are there any difference(s) between the "Buy" and "Request"?
If any links that I need to know/read first before I ask those questions above, please feel free to post the exact links.
Thanks and God bless.
