To charge around £200 for a OS is plain ridiculous, and stinks of greed. How much do they charge for Ubuntu?
I paid about $200 for '98 ....and back then $200 AUD was a shitload more than 200 pounds is now.
Probably had about a millionth of the source code involved in its creation, too.
As for Ubuntu.....Torvalds released Linux under the GNU licence....it's sort of 'supposed' to be free....but mostly it isn't, not anymore.
If Stardock's wares were free you wouldn't be here, nor would these forums....
