Using a US$10 Billion OS for free

I was just surfing around when I stumbled across this Slashdot article that said Fedora 9 is estimated to worth about US$10 billion if built from scratch.

Wow! And all these while I have been using it mainly for writing papers and preparing slides. Somehow, now I feel like have been driving a Rolls like a Kelisa.

Goes to show that OSS can command some serious dough.

The next version of this wonderful multi-billion dollar distro will launch on 25th Nov 2008.
