Where is this "Linux users don't pay for software" idea coming from? I buy software all the time, and I would love it if I could buy products like photo shop and games from steam on Linux.

It's not that I don't like paying for software, I don't like paying for an operating system, nor do I enjoy using windows.

  • the cost of maintaining a system built by someone who doesn't know when to clear their mind and think a little more about a problem
  • the cost of maintaining a system built by someone who doesn't know when to incorporate already implemented software packages/api's/tools
