...Why pay for Windows when you, as a major bank, could do everything OpenSource? Why buy expensive clothes when you could replace cheap ones more often. Ok, so the last one is a spurious argument, but into this comes what Terry Pratchett calls "Vime's Law". To whit: a poor person buying a $5 pair of boots will spend more in a life time than a rich person who buys a long lasting $50 pair. I wonder how much of that effect would come into low cost sats for business critical operations?
