The FOSS world must understand “just install Linux” won’t cut it. We must make “the whole widget” as Jobs would say.
But don’t listen to me, let Stallman make the case:
Richard: I’ve never installed the GNU plus Linux system on a computer myself.
Richard: I always found someone who knew how to do that. Got someone to do it for me.
Me: So it was so difficult that you have not installed…
Richard: No, it's just that I was so busy, I didn’t wanna learn how.
@ebel Haha, I hadn’t heard that one before. Might have to yoink it ;)
@ebel @aral You can pay someone else to drive it for you, you can rent it, you can sell it, you can learn to fly it avoiding rental cost, you can sell it in parts, you can pay/learn to modify and repair the engine, you can even crash it on purpose if you want. It depends on you, not the giver or the helicopter itself. You are, indeed, "free as in helicopter".
