/me wonders how many people in the DoJ bill paid off.
I think that if this did start to happen, if people told other people that they could get a free os just like they can get a free mp3 or movie, then they would consider it. Now, learning to use it would take time but I don't know.
At first, before reading Learner's post, I thought "Ok well I will just never use computer's again if this is how it is going to end." But then, i realized, "Hey, that could work." So now if it does start happening, then I am replacing windows with linux and figuring it out as I go...then here comes the family to ask me how to do things I am learning myself.
As much as we can create and advance it is just more that can be taken away.
*note, I edited "DoD" to read "DoJ" because I mean Justice not Defense.
