[PLUG] Slashdot news and op-ed piece on software licensing

This might help if you're trying to convince your company to give Free
Software a try, even a limited one.  The article talks about
"...Microsoft's changes to its distribution policy for all future
editions of Windows. No longer will you receive a CD which is capable of
installing the operating system with your new computer - Original
Equipment Manufacturers are forbidden to ship you one
even though you just paid ~$100 for the software, and even though the
change makes customers less than happy


BTW, conspiracy theories are in the linked articles, so I won't go into
that here.  ;)
