That means there's libre-free software and a service provided by a non-distro company which is, for selected distros, gratis-free. For now.

I like your Latin-based distinction of "free" better than the free-as-in-beer v.s. free-as-in-speech method.
I'll have to remember it for the next time I give a speech on OSS at the Roman senate.

This is the very reason I don't have a cell phone

I met a gentleman last night who recently purchased a Droid phone and claimed that it's the first mobile phone that he's ever owned. When I asked him why he didn't own one before, he responded:

"I thought cell phones were only useful for buying drugs."

I think he also has a 5-digit slashdot user id

The iPhone is also enticing for developers because you only have to develop for AT&T's network and its restrictions.

When you develop an application for the BlackBerry, you could find that a feature that works on AT&T doesn't work on Verizon, or behaving entirely differently on T-Mobile or Sprint.
