And I get tired of hearing people like you dump on those who have given
so much to the open source community.

No one is forcing you to use anything from Cygnus (oops, Red Hat), so if

grateful for all they've done, and understand the balance between what they
provide for the community and what they charge for.  If you can't, fine.

brain damage.

Good luck with your endeavors.
