    And software upgrades are never free. Red Hat charges for upgrades. Microsoft and Apple charge for upgrades. Oracle and IBM charge for upgrades. SAP charges for upgrades. So you telling me that server admins running Red Hat / Microsoft servers loaded with Oracle / IBM / SAP applications should never upgrade their systems because their software updates are not free.
    First you're talking about Desktop users, then you warp the subject to suit your argument. I am a Desktop user, and I do not care about Servers, nor do I care about proprietary software, because there are (in most cases) FOSS alternatives.

    EDIT:
    I highly doubt "1 day all the Linux distros in the world decide to charge for software upgrades", and if, then there will be forkage.
    RHEL -> CentOS, one example.
