What's wrong with a commercialized linux?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 06, 2002 12:29 PM
whats the problem with linux commercializing itself, then maybe they might recieve some market share. If they give their **entire** source anyone could clone the OS and make it unable to commercialize itself (and dont go giving redhat as an example, the only reason they are successful is because they were the first). I think we should give Lindows a chance to gain market share and not have to release its **entire** source code the the public.
