Comment Re: Yes, but it won't happen any time soon (Score 1) 105

So if a few friends and I between us manage to set up a bakery cartel, you'll happily start paying us $30 a loaf because for you to expect anything less would be the same as if you expected a free ride? How about $40 a loaf, or even $50? You'll pay it?

Thanks! That's very encouraging, and I'll be sure to take that into consideration in my business plan.

Thank you for the fine example of something known as "false equivalence".

So if I get this right, India is making a huge income off of outsourcing, H1B, etc, working for American companies developing software and then having that income funneled back into their country,

It's not India the country or the Indian government getting rich. It's some Indian businessmen getting rich off gouging the workers they send overseas.

but they won't buy that software even at reduced educational rates? Good to see they're doing their part.

That's the government of an Indian state. Whose schools in all likelihood are not getting financed by the aforementioned businessmen.

What you're suggesting is akin to suggesting that the public schools in North Dakota naturally have more money than they know what to do with because Microsoft is an American company that makes lots of money, which is not really the case, is it?

Been running openSUSE as my primary OS for about 12 years.

Also been running it in a VM for 6 or 7 years. You are using VirtualBox? Shared folders/shared clipboard are pretty awesome.

(Why are you "stuck" with Win 8.1 on the host, BTW?)

In any case, let me know if you run into any issues. Glad to help if I can.
