"My (rhetorical) question is if you want free software; why not just
download it from the internet? Why give a contract to Novell? It just shows
the increasing commercialisation of Linux. Novell does nothing for free -
they're a publicly traded company. If you're going to pay for software,
we'll come to the table too and then we'll do a real comparison. A lot of
people go into things thinking that they're getting software for free but
they're not in the long term."
I thought that was amusing - on several counts:-)
