RE[3]: It's not even a hobby OS

Member since:

You're going to tell me that a Live DEMO CD is the same thing as a fully working/installable free Linux distro?

I'm sorry about misunderstanding your "cost too much just to toy around with it". Didn't know your "toy around" was meant to imply "fully working/installable".

The meaning of the word "hobby" is another linguistic topic we seem to disagree. I don't associate "hobby" with "free".

Maybe it's better for the OS/2 community if not everybody can just toy around with the OS. Sometimes value has its price.
