Would you care to provide some examples? Furthermore, XP cannot be 'downloaded' but can be bought for around 150 dollars! GNU/Linux, on the other hand, can either be downloaded for free off of the Internet (some distributions like Debian) or bought for very cheap (I saw Best Buy selling RedHat for 15 dollars!).
Also, GNU/linux abides by the GNU General Public Licence (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt
). This means that one can modify the source of GNU/Linux and other GNU software and redistribute it however they want! When was th last time you saw a 'src' folder in a Microsoft product?
