Well, yes, but that's true for both the Linux community and the
Windows community. In the Linux community you can buy a system from a
company like mine, and we'll maintain the whole thing, or you can
choose software from a company like Scyld, and pay them to maintain it
for you.

But you're right that wrangling about it doesn't solve anything. I
like Linux. I'm happy to prove it in the business world, by offering
products that succeed in the marketplace of economics and the
marketplace of ideas.

[ I'm sure Tim is aware of all this, he's quite savvy of both the
Linux universe and the Windows universe... ]
