I think I've been misunderstood.
I just hate those who feel the need to compare Linux to other OSes and
argument that it should have that application and those functions and so
on to compete. Linux should not compete, IMHO. It should exist. Period.
I'm currently using SUSE. Commercial distros apply fair ways of making
money out of Linux. And developers must eat.
But if you don't agree that GNU/Linux is mainly about freedom, you can
use MacOSX which has a *nix core and loads of stable and easy to install
apps already here.
Do you really think that in a world which kills people for oil (or let
them die without helping, because they've nothing) and in which the big
media industry forges most people's mind one day we'll see open source
software and Linux (like it is now, to just a commercial OS called
Linux) on every PC?
Yes, the pentagon built the internet. So what?
