Good luck.

TuxSux poked his little head through the XP firewall and said:



It's been working for Microsoft. Nobody wants Windows, but it is given
away for free on every consumer computer (or so I heard from the
Wintrolls).

Red Hat apparently costs more that Windows Server, yet many people seem
to want to buy it.

7 poked his little head through the XP firewall and said:



Reverse his name: SuxTux. 'cause that's what he does. Otherwise, why
would he be here?

Little? That's a huge, fat waddler of a penguin. A dozen years in
development, thousands of free apps, hundreds of distros - and only a few
dollars in cost assigned.

Allocate actual development time and cost to Linux/OSS, then divide it by
the actual number of installed copies in the world, and you'll find a
grotesquely overpriced investment blob that could never be recouped, even
with 10x the Linux market share.

The pitiful thing is they don't care about recouping their costs.

Linux: surreal

Linux: priceless. There are some things that money can't buy. For the
rest, few are worth the asking price.

Not only is Microsoft given away for free, but a lot of other
software comes along for the ride as well - software that would
normally cost money to buy separately.

This suggests of course that Microsoft Windows value is *negative*...

(Does this make sense to anyone else?)

DFS poked his little head through the XP firewall and said:




1. Show me the numbers.

2. Assign a price to a Free (as in liberated) operating system.

3. Tell why recouping any monetary cost should matter to those who write code
for Linux and the apps it runs.


Agreed. I never, ever thought something so beautiful and free could
exist in this business-crazed era. All praise to Stallman and Torvalds,
and hundreds of others.

This one http://www.yqcomputer.com/
says $4,000,000,000 (4 billion) back in '98. I'm sure you could add another
$1 billion since then.




I can't speak for them.




It's good to be da freeloader, eh?

Imagine how much better Linux would be if some of these developers were paid
to write apps. Maybe the Gambas project would bear fruit, instead of
languishing because the creator has only so much time.

Perhaps $10,000,000,000 over the period of which they speak (now over
20 years) would be a better current estimate? They do spell out that
this includes the apps that come with the distro, of course.

I'm not sure of the point that you are trying to make though.
Can you give us a figure for total Microsoft revenue over the past 20
years?

Yeah, I need that receipt for the CD that you put
linux on and then gave me. I am returning the CD.
Must be an error. Just *** on the CD.
