Slackware, Slax There are different reasons people use Unix-like operating systems, including configurable, availability free of charge, powerful command line interface an many more. Some people are motivated by the moral issue: they reject non-free software. Specifically for such users Free Software Foundation developed Guidelines for Free System Distributions and created the list of absolutely free ("as in freedom") distributions. In this article we are going to look at the most recent entry on the list - Parabola GNU/Linux.

No instead they demand you use a license that makes it more difficult to make money, unless you already have pots of cash.

Who is making money off the BSD's? Oh those poor companies Apple, Cisco, Juniper, yes totally unlike those companies making money out off GPL licenced code.

Richard Stallman doesn't like software professionals.

FSF employs people to write software. GCC (software flagship of FSF) is developed by full-time software professionals hired by a large number of companies.

Secondly I will say it again, if a software engineer apparently find it difficult to understand the difference,

Obviously not all 'software engineers' are created equal because being a programmer and working with programmers all day I can say that it's not a hard concept. If someone can understand the concept of 'if you use this code in your project you have to pay me', then they can grasp the concept of [i]'if you use this code in your project you have to release the source code of your project'.[/]
