It *is* free software. That doesn't mean that vendors have to download
it, burn it, verify it, market it, distribute it, support it and pay
for all the overheads for nothing. There's no business model in that.


Precisely. That was my question. Why would anyone do any of that? Just download it from Debian.org already. Separate vendors aren't adding any value. Why should they get paid for doing nothing useful?
