free software v Microsft

There is an excellent debate on the 'morality' of charging for software in the comments on a lengthy weblog post by Robert Scoble.

Scoble (who works for Microsoft) takes the side of profits are good, and Jeremy Allison (an architect of Samba, a networking component of Linux) shows up to take the side of free software. Various other parties jump in as well.

For those of you who are unaware of free/open software might want to check out a definition of the free software movement. It's the current to next trend in the software industry.
