I gather the price includes updates and fixes. While SUSE charge for their u> version of LINUX the total cost is still well short of that other well known OS. I thought -- and, please, someone correct me if needed -- that to be in compliance with the copyright law in regards to all distros of Linux that it has to be free for the taking. That's what open source is all about. I suppose I could do my own research, but this is something others on the list may be interested in and someone here already knows the answer. Is it that they don't offer ISO downloads, and so you have to compile your own executables? Or is this a closed-source version of Linux?
