WTF do you want? You do not want to pay for software, you want it free, but since the Free Software crowd in Linux is unable to deliver a decent experience, you've welcomed Mr. Shuttleworth's Wonderful Piggybacking Adventure in Debianland. Now, how do you expect he should pay his employees and run a business?
This is what happens, kids. You've been told you are to pay for nothing. You've been told that advanced software should be free. Never mind that you still pay for hardware, or cars, or power tools at your garage (a contractor pays much more for his tools than you have come to expect to pay for yours, although most of your tools are offshoots or direct products of PhDs). But software! Hey, software should be free as shit is free! You've been told supporting businesses is illegal - almost - or at least immoral. Now you get what you pay for.
So, stop complaining and quit with the whining. Or face the fact that free as in "libre" software is only free because someone else is freeing up the costs for you (by either entering the GPL/proprietary double-blind cynical scheme, or using a business-friendly license). There is no free lunch. There is no pool of full time experts in free software. Experts don't work for nothing. Only the low-skilled works for nothing. Everybody's gotta eat, and not everyone is a lonely celibate as Stallman, that can just go around collecting money for his Church.
You keep kidding yourselves that Linux is the victor of Free Software, when all it was was part of an IBM backed-up business plan to kill proprietary Unixen. Linux is driven by corporations, and now you will begin to eat each other's livers. All that will remain is going to be Shuttleworth's Spyware Machine and Red Hat's per seat licenses. Debian sucks, Fedora is the RedHat dump site, Mandriva is moronically managed, SuSE - wtf is SuSE?, and all the small distros are insignificant. You thought being business-hostile was good, but you've embrace hypocrisy to the utmost, while deriding the BSD distros, which never claimed to ride such high horses of morality and always supported businesses.
You want it all, but you can't have it...
