Re: [SLE] Now I think it's time to talk about licenses
Hi

Well.. I believe that we should think more carefully, what is SuSE?

To my opinion it is a company, that makes a very nice admin-software to a
publicly available, GPL software, and puts them to a working pile of CD, and
writes the documents, and keeps the web-pages up to date.

So, the most part of the SW is actually written by someone else, that does
not have *anything" to do with SuSE. These other pieces do have GPL licences,
SuSE has not touched them.

The part that SuSE does, does not need to be GPL, but can be if they want.

I'm more then happy to pay the price they want for their product.
It is in perfect relation between quality and price... Not like with some
other companies.

I might be wrong here in some degree, but this is roughly how I think it is.
