2 thoughts here.

1. It's free, the license permanently guarentees it's free, and I'm
betting you didn't pay for it. So is the stock worth anything greater
than free?

2. RedHat and Linux.* are still a good 2 years of serious work, project
management, bug fixing, and features no geek wants to work on away from
passing the "mom test". I'm betting you're no slacker on the geek scale
but could your mom have installed RedHat?

As an ex-daytrader, the wierdness of #1 is a good thing, the only bad
stock is a stable one :) but #2 is what you need to beat Windows or
MacOS. Apple actually remembers what the "U" in GUI is for, where Linux
only has the "I" [as in me, myself and...] down real well. I'd say MSFT
and AAPL are the ones worth every penny, well, AAPL anyway :)

Help may be on the way, maybe these guys will figure it out

Or maybe Linux geeks will listen (hahaha)
