I understand your point, but to make my point, I disagree. I'd say anything,
do anything, and build anything if it sells a Free Operating System and puts money
in my pocket. I can think a zillion ethically worse things to do which, while legal,
which would be much worse than painting Free Software in the most positive light possible
...and one of those things would include selling Windows to a business 'because the desktop
is just not ready yet'. Windows is clearly not ready of the business desktop.
Free Software was ready yesterday.
