Not the same topic, but the same subject ... of selling GNU/Linux and Open Source.
I saw on a website where you can BUY use of the Firefox web-browser.
The annual fee for using Firefox is $120 USD
This includes Firefox 3.5 and extensions, add-ons and themes. And, of course, updates.
You buy annual use of the same free down-loadable Firefox we all use.
The company selling Firefox, changed nothing. Not even re-branding.
*face-palm* I'm sure there are many people buying Free Open Source Software (FOSS) and Mozilla products.
As well, as GNU/Linux Operating Systems.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
But, no "I" would not buy Alex (which is basically, a laptop with a Linux OS pre-installed) and the services that go with it ... but you know there are people that will.
It in it's own way, Alex will help make people more aware of what Linux is and how much better an Operating System it is than Windows.
And, that helps to bring Linux and Open Source to the masses.
