Paid Support Not Critical For Linux Adoption

codeforprofit2 Of cause (199 comments)

The whole idea that the open source community would be able to be financed with service and support is ridicolous.

Socialized house funding on it's way to the US.

codeforprofit2 codeforprofit2 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Svante Eriksson (457961) writes "The US, unlike most of the western world, do not have socialized funding of health care. However, the congress is in progress of introducing socialized funding of private houses. The tax payers is going to take over the resposibility and risk from lenders and borrowers.

Even the republicans, who are usually fiercly against this kind of programmes, are supporting the governmental funding and risk absorbing of private property.
