Michael Hall at LinuxPlanet writes: "Last week LinuxPlanet editor Kevin Reichard wrote a hotly debated note on the underlying issues behind
the dearth of commercial applications for Linux. At the root of his argument is an understanding shared
by a lot of Linux observers: the confusion between free software and free beer, and how little many
commercial vendors feel they can trust our community to do the right thing given the opportunity to
just take something."
