So... when Nero comes out with an upgrade Microsoft supplies the
upgrade? Wow, when did this start happening?

openSUSE is no different then MS, they supply security updates to the
original packages that they supplied, nothing more.

The difference is that MS offer of application leaves many wishes unsatisfied.
For instance Nero you have to buy, and then after installation go to Nero web
site for updates. Some are not important (like security ;-) ), but some you
have to pick up, like drivers, otherwise you spit a money for nothing.

It is interesting that many people react on Linux like they do a favor to guy
that is promoting Linux and wants to help them out.
It is the same as one would have chance to get Cadillac for free and he/she
accepts offer under one condition, to be careful and watch not to scratch his
Yugo. Otherwise ....
