Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "This follow-up to the previously published article 'Ubuntu: Derivative or Fork?' takes into account most of everything that has been posted as a reaction to the first article to present a general opinion and compare them with facts derived from various resouces. You'll see that peace can be achieved between these two, and ultimately any GNU/Linux group out there."

I care about freedom and free stuff.

Do you mean to tell me that as a developer you would complain about getting free stuff that requests any products you make with it must be available as free stuff, too?

Why expect someone to give it to you and trust you to be good with it?

I know BSD does that. But if you're so greedy that you don't want to share your modifications you shouldn't expect anyone to give you Linux(TM) to do with as you please. You must be crazy, man. This is real world production quality technology here, not some unversity's toy project. Need me to spell it out for you? If you want to benefit from the Intellectual Property IBM and HP and SGI and countless others are dumping into this technology you gotta pay for the right to distribute with your Intellectual Property.

I'm sorry, but Linux ain't free beer. If you want to drink this beer you must promise to go pee in the toilet.
