I'm not very knowledgable about the Linux world, but the two things that go with it are open source and free.

There ain't No Such Thing as a Free Lunch.

Somewhere, sometime, somehow, someone has to pay the bill.
This goes for all the free distros but realy applies here. Now we have a guy who owns a company hireing high dollar help [and a lot more than than that report says, I'll wager!] and is throwing big wads of cash to get his project up and going. Namely a free OS to give away to the masses.
If you add the other FREE distros, and this is only a guess, you have many millions being spent on something thats free. [remember TNSTFL!]
Sombody has to be paying the bill and somebody has to be makeing it.
All these different distro's, Most free. How?
