Re: Nice

Thank you for your honesty. You may not realise it but you have reenforced the reasons why those of without guilded occupations are reliant upon FOSS computing.

It might be cheaper, but not everything is upfront cost. One of the reasons the state of Big Biz is so deplorable is they look for the cheapest way to do everything and employing people that know stuff is simply not in their interest.

A FOSS installation, once working, stays working. Vendor lock-in makes that impossible.
