C'mon! FLOSS is not an all coders brigade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It covers
anything in a computer, including the legal stuff! Coders, network engrs,
system designers, lawyers, advertisers, artists, social workers, teachers,
students,  FLOSS  users, People supporting children in Somalia via Vim
contribs, CPI(M) :)), Achu mama, ........  This basically means :
- if one is using GNU/Linux you are a FLOSS guy!
- If one is using Emacs, GCC, Openoffice,... on Windows you are a floss
- If you are using GIMP/Firefox/GCC on Mac you are a floss guys..
- If you help people use FLOSS you are a floss guy,
- If you have passed an ordinace to get GNU/Linux in schools, ......... All
fads, huh??

   If I have paid for XYZ software, It hurts to see that I do not own
it,!!! You bought a M$ cow, but you can only take the milk and the dung!!!
And you cannot milk it unless M$ allows you to!!! I donno if they will have
a EULA for the crap:))  If one has a pirated copy of Window$
.......................................!!!! . We stand for good citizens,
not pirates, we stand for *freedom* to milk the cow; to patch the cow if
it's giving less milk and and dung; and create better cows out of it too :D

I give up here!!!

I have nothing against Apple.... Infact i agree with you about the
quality of their products. I was just picking on Githin who thinks
that everything that is not "free" is not worth using.
Free software is great and it doesn't hurt to have software that's
closed too. Most of the folks who talk about free software in cec are
not coders themselves. They are into it like its some kind of a fad!
