ZDNet 'Leaning Towards Linux' Article
In the article 'Leaning Towards Linux' by Neil Randall
mentioned that the Red Hat and Debian distributions as being commercial.
This is not quite correct. While Red Hat is a commercial distribution
sold for profit, Debian is maintained and compiled through volunteer work.
CD vendors have the option of duplicating and selling the official
Debian provides Official CD "Masters" to all CD manufacturers on request.
Anyone can duplicate and sell the Official CD without having to pay a fee.
CD manufacturers may also make non-official Debian CDs, which may contain
files added by the CD manufacturer as well as those provided by Debian. More
information on this is available at http://www.debian.org/vendors.html.
For more information regarding the Debian organization please see
http://www.debian.org, and in particular the page containing Debian's
'Social Contract' at http://www.debian.org/social_contract.html.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or
another member of the Debian organization.
