The reality: But is it different? Somehow we've gotten this idea that everyone who writes software for Linux does it for the warm fuzzies. No Linux ISV tries to take advantage of people, and none of them ever had. Linux has been around for 20 years. Everyone has been ethical and trustworthy the whole time.
