Can somebody explain to me why redhat, ubuntu, any commercial organisation can get enthusiasts
to help them find bugs and stabilise a product, only for them, once stable, to sell it as a
stable enterprise os.
The point is - let commercial organisations look after themselves, I'm sure they can afford
to do that.
The not-for profit ones need other means to compete and the best way to do that is to get
people to work on that distro and make that better than the rest.
Dont get me wrong, I expect people to get paid for their work but I would rather donate time
and money for apps like ardour, gimp, cinelerra, scribus etc because they need the time and
money. Encourage all app devs to make their newer releases integrate into a truly stable
(with security releases) distro.
I just think this is a better way. I am certainly open to suggestions as to why I am wrong.
