Yeah, and like the other major distros, they put a
fair amount of work into selecting even the free
software that they include, and packaging it all
nicely with the dependencies all accounted for
and some decent printed books and a good installer
that's getting smarter every release. All-in-all,
I don't begrudge them my money.
They're helping promote open source.
I do, however, prefer not to pay $35 to a courier
company for "handling" (i.e., getting the box
across the border), plus tax(es) plus the US dollar
exchange... (in addition to the dollars that the
seller charges for international shipping) which
is why I wanna buy within the country... preferrably
within the city.
