Linux Is this some sort of prank 16860
No, Kier, like OSDisc.com which was the issue being discussed. But not in the case of OSDisc.com, Kier. They are just preying on the unfortunate, making a fair bit of money from the efforts of the developers and not paying a ha-penny to them for their efforts.
They charge an unconsciencable premium for the service, Kier. They have a distribution business formed from shipping products for which they pay nothing. The developer spends hours on end creating and updating their programs, and this bozo makes a couple of bucks off of every copy that the slobs without broadband access order. They are making a profit, pure and simple, and are in business to prey on these folk. If they had the same dedication as the developers, they would ship these distributions for under a dollar each.

You and your kind complain continually about the excess profits made by Microsoft and other commercial software vendors, but you ignore the very same thing in your own back garden. That is hypocritical.
Well you people call them Winidiots for doing that same thing vis-a-vis Microsoft Windows. What do you call them when they are taken in by the linux charlatans?
