Works entering the public domain provide an economic benefit to future generations.
Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Dickens works have been public domain for quite some time. What economic benefits have been gained so far? Nothing, other than getting those works for free.
Bullshit, people have been sampling and remixing public domain works for years and have created new works of value. To say the public domain has no economic benefit for new creators is terribly short-sighted.
Plenty of users of the BSDs contribute their changes back. Yahoo and Apple are both rather giving in this respect. Part of the reasoning is that once you make your change proprietary you then have to effectively fork the code and continue all maintenance yourself. For infrastructure changes its simply easier to contribute the change back. If someone keeps one bit proprietary and submits ten other bits back as a result of keeping that bit proprietary I still consider that a win.
See I choose not to be a dumb fuck and live in a state that is going to fall in the ocean if it doesn't burn to death before then. And because I choose better then you, I am going to make fun of you for your stupid fucking decision.

At least you parade your ignorance in your first sentence.
This is precisely why the OP mentioned it, as it would be reformatted with Linux. Slightly older ThinkPads work GREAT with Linux.
I rest my case
Just call the vomit-inducing situation a "feature" and be done with it. In fact, I can see this ushering in a whole new wave of quick-weight-loss VR!
No innovation? There's nothing else like them in the market.
Because the market left that space years ago...
...provide an experience very much like the desktop...
Excellent! I always wanted my phone to BSOD in the middle of an important call!
Well some did try to ban the sales of inefficient (incandescent) light bulbs a few years ago and you see how some of the yahoos railed against that as anti-free-market.
Uh, Big Business is doing a fantastic job of destroying the middle-class without the EPA even being involved.
You do know that you can use the SAN environment variable to create UCC certs without having to modify openssl.cnf right? Its much easier to create multiple UCC certs that way.
Hell, I still think the FCC counts it as high-speed even now in their broadband reports.
