Amen to that.
OSS is wonderful, I embrace it heartily, every day.
But my average customer doesn't want source code to fiddle with.
They want solid, supported, software that gets the job done.
They are more than willing to pay a fair price for such software.
When Linux has this readily available, they will embrace Linux.
Until then, they will continue to embrace Windows.
ANY quality software that runs well on Linux, is good for Linux.
Period.
