Weird Quote

While reading this article on the new OpenSolaris 08.11, I came across the following quote:

The OpenSolaris project launched its first pseudo-commercial release, code-named Project Indiana, in May, with the goal of getting the open source variant of Solaris humming along in binary form and being used by the development community and other cheapskates who like to play with operating systems but who don't want to pay for them.

What caught my attention is the author labels those who tinker with open-source, free software as cheapskates who don't want to pay. Hey come on, if Windows were open-source, i promise I will install Windows everywhere, including the flush system of my loo.

Would you want your loo to crash frequently? Think of the stink.

Anyway, it's just the normal register style. Haven't visited there for a long time but it's good for a few chuckles every now and then.

Hmm, if I had the source code, I will be able to fix it right there ;)
