Let's See, in the past years:
I bought the Red Hat Box Set on RH 4.2, 5.2, 6.1, and 7.1 Box Sets.
I bought Red Hat 6.2 and 7.2 Disks from Cheapbytes
(complete with sources and other tools).
I bought the Mandrake 7.0 Box Set.
I bought a Linux Unleashed book twice (with distros), one for
Red Hat, the other for Slackware.
I bought Suse, and Debian disks from Linux Central via my LUG.
I made a contribution to linuxiso.org
I paid for 2 years commercial support from Code Forge for C-Forge.
I bought 4 (GCC and Make) books from the gnu.org.
And I won't go into how many books with sources I bought for Development
on my Linux System.
Yep, I got it all for free.....NOT!
The good news is I get to decide where I'm going to spend my money instead
of being forced to buy Bundled garbage I don't want just for the *license*
(NOTE: NOT THE SOFTWARE) to run programs as I had to do in the past (over
10 years ago) to develop on Windows.
