The movie PiratesOfSiliconValley takes you back 30 years when software was a bought and sold commodity. It is still getting sold today, but not so much, most people I know either hack a window's program or use Linux. It is quite amazing to see how far free software as come these last few years. In fact, I think Ubuntu 7.4 represents a turning point. From now on Linux will always be easier to use and better than Windows. This is quite amazing seeing that Bill Gates spent $50,000 for DOS and he is not one to easily part with his money.
Today, 30 years later there are lots of things Windows users can't do and Linux users can, and a lot of it stems from not being willing to share your talents with your fellow man. Linux, it is just a better way. Things I can do in Linux that I can't do on Windows. This link shows that IBM was right if something cost nothing to redistribute then it is worth only what the user gets out of it. I don't lose anything by sharing Linux with everyone. I might even gain something if there is another nice sharing person out there. Enjoy Linux, I do.
