It might be that I need to pay for the BIOS or whatever, when I buy a
new mobo, dunno, but I don't pay a Cent now and my mobo doesn't nearly
cost 99 US$. I don't pay anyone, if I build a kernel-rt.
In Germany I'm paying a lot to different Mafias. If I buy an empty sound
carrier I have to pay a performing right society called GEMA, but that's
not a good argument for paying an additional fee.
