Please, don't get me wrong. But I actually fear the day in which

another commercial o.s.

For me gnu/Linux is the best operating system because it is free (as in
free speech). The fact that open source software most of the times is
better, in terms of power and versatility, than its commercial
counterpart is a direct consequence of the whole open source philosophy
and the people, the community behind it.

I think that we don't have to demonstrate anything to anybody. We should
just thank god that there are still some people who value freedom and
the right of knowledge. If we're into OSS just because we think it's
better, we've missed the point about why it is better.

Just my two cents.
