@falktx I wonder how much would it cost them to migrate to free software.
@falktx To be honest 800k is not that much money. Considering we throw millions into way more pointless things.
So I wouldn't consider it that much of s scandal, but also don't think it's a good thing. Let's not make it a pointless hype, let's work on solving it instead. :)
(Hint: They would pay similar amounts of money to SUSE, Canoncial or Redhat when they would use their desktop solutions EOL)
