Ah, Feeling a bit more educated. :->
tnx for those links y'all. guess the main reason large companies get behind Free Software is along the lines of sharing costs and not having to seperately maintain a different set of enhancements/bug fixes? That and they all have a chance of charging us schmucks for customer service

suppose I'd have to find alternate sw that'd work instead of Skype and sekond life - is it true there might be a linux version commming out?

thankee again

Ted, feeling dazed having to take all this stuff in!

Firefox has some trademark problems.  The software is free software, but to
distribute modified versions of it you have remove the trademarked "firefox"
name and logos.

AFAIK, Skype and Second Life are not free software.  If you can download
them for no cost, they are freeware.  If every recipient could examine and
modify the source code and distribute modified versions, they would be free

BTW, for an explanation of what free software is, see:
