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.

Member since:

Oracle is actually a poor choice for a comparison, they are really going to differentiate their linux offering from RHEL ( BTRFS, DTrace, ect).

It did however begin as Larry promising 100% RHEL compatibility.

Maybe there are some pieces of software that are best open, and others that are best not open?

Precisely. I will be releasing my dissertation (written three years ago) as MIT or similar license, it doesn't make sense for me to release it as anything else.

However there is another project that I am currently working on that will be released that will require a license to be purchased.
