Linux Genuine Advantage™

Quote
Linux Genuine Advantage™ works by checking our licensing server periodically to make sure that the copy of Linux you are running is Genuine. This is determined by whether you have paid us the appropriate licensing fees. If you are out of compliance, and are past the grace period, logins to your machine will be disabled until the license fees are paid. How to log in to enter the license key when logins are disabled is left as an exercise for the reader.

Finally! Linux users can experience a feature that until now remained the exclusive domain of proprietary software.

Was just sitting here wondering how the 'stealth upgrades' will work, my understanding is you just about have to compile everything yourself  :huh: ;D

Now if Fedora will shut down my computer remotely, and then deny that Red Hat had anything to do with it.... hey wait, that will NEVER happen — woohoo!!

Thanks for the laugh, mitzevo!
