The next step for Linux advocacy

Author: JT Smith

osOpinion has a column suggesting the next kind of Linux advocacy should be paying for stuff. "It's time to thank the developers. Things like buying at least one boxed copy of every distribution you run shows
the vendors that you appreciate their efforts -- and helps keep them in business. Buy games that you think
might be fun. I have at this moment only one game from Loki ... I realize the Windows versions are cheaper, but in order to best
serve the community, and Loki, for their efforts I think it's only fair that I give them their just reward.

Philanthropy goes a long way. Free software will always be around, as long as people want it. Commercial
software is only around as long as it's profitable."
