Legal Andy Martin of The Committee to Fight Microsoft on Tuesday announced his intentions to block Microsoft from releasing its Windows Vista operating system. Martin intends to ask Microsoft for an unconditional warranty that the operating system is free of bugs that could result in security vulnerabilities. He argues that no company in America gets away with selling a "defective" product the way Microsoft does.

but you aren't charged 300-400 to use them...

Yes. It's quite expensive. And none of it is for the product itself.

Red Hat charges for support services. Large companies will pay large amounts of money for a 100% guarantee that whatever they purchase will operate smoothly.

Red Hat acknowledges that there are bugs in its software. By paying them, you place the onus to solve problems on them.
