People Don’t Want Free Software ... Yeah Right

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Sep 30, 2010.

  1. After the BSA insists “that companies who need software really want
    proprietary software, and that open source or other alternatives generally
    aren't what they're looking forâ€, turns out they aren’t above choosing Free
    Software themselves over a paid-for equivalent
    <http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20100926/22570911176/if-the-bsa-is-so-sure-companies-would-pay-for-software-why-did-it-use-free-webserver-software.shtml>.

    Oh, and I confirmed that their server headers do contain these lines:

    Server: Apache/2.0.52 (CentOS)
    X-Powered-By: PHP/4.3.9

    (Yeah, they really need to update that server.)
