Sorry. I meant in the CD packing business.

How can it be explained that Red Hat EL sells for a price comparable to some
versions of Windows? At least, at Microsoft they had the costs of producing

What about some versions of linux totally based on free and GPLed software
selling for $40-50? The price of media?
