Thanks for the article, a very concise and to the point, I've always expected Patric to be this way. He made a good point about binary only distribtions and signing non-disclosure statements when you test drive a beta release, I agree with him 100% it might conradict with GNU GPL, and FSF standards.
In your opinion ppl, do you think distros' mirror ftp servers would charge for downloading linux?
I, personally, don't have a problem with it, I've chosen linux not because it is free as in beer. It is for a good cause.
even though I've downloaded 8.1, and it's been running in my box for a while now, Slackware is gonna be in my Christmass list this year, just to help Patrick Volkerding out a little bit. Humm, what are the chances the next version is gonna be ready for Christmass??
