we can sit here all day and all night, name calling and throwing insults back and forth at each
other and nothing will ever get solved.
I'm not saying that we should rape SuSE and rob them blind. Hell no, I'm not saying that at all.
I to have bought a lot of their distros, and I also dawn their shirt and hat while crusing around the
city, walking through the malls and shoping centers, so forth and so on. And when I meet newbies
online or in the real world the first company I reffer them to is SuSE. And I offer help and assistance
of any and every kind. So i'm not talking about "Lets rob SuSE blide" I do belive that their users should
support them and I do support them.
I just dont fully agree with what they did. I feel that there is a better way of doing things.
And I dont want everything for free.
