This is frequently said by those who use "real" Unices, derived from AT&T UNIX or BSD code, be it FreeBSD, HP-UX, Solaris, or whatever.

I would agree somewhat, if it's say, red hat with GNOME or KDE, with xdm/gdm/kdm. But a Slackware or Debian installation with none of the comfy friendly GUI stuff installed is much less of a toy, if it is to be considered that at all.

koala: you're wrong about big business not liking free software. They use it all the time. FreeBSD. Apache.

Yes, I'm aware of The UNIX Trademark.
