Kelly McNeill writes "Why aren't companies using GPL software solutions for the majority of the productivity requirements? The same answer comes up again and again in one form or another -- if something goes wrong, who do they blame? When property software is installed or unsealed, some form of license agreement is entered into giving both parties (licensor and licensee) some form of legal rights. In other words, if something goes wrong, legal action can be taken.
Isn't it wonderful that now all those companies that want to use that blame finger, now can. GNU/Linux distributions can offer their product for download, for sale in a pretty box, or now you can buy a warranty for your distribution."
