Mike is absolutely and totally correct.
Ian has already helped give me a better OS for my home machine than
I've ever had before -- it is also free of cost. Just like the FSF,
the proposed Debian organization will be, in essence, a charity.
Debian will be completely available through FTP. People will not be
required to purchase CD-ROMs from Debian rather than some company that
manages to provide them cheaper.
Therefore, I am willing to make the first donation for equipment
expenses to <whatever the Debian organization is named these days>. I
suggest that my humble donation of $50(US) (which will be in the mail
tomorrow) be used towards the purchase of a 14.4k modem to speed the
pace of Debian development. It is money well spent. I know it will
come back to me in one form or another.
I expect my next donation to be reciprocated with a CD-ROM containing
Debian and perhaps a fine manual.
