    If Ubuntu had a Price tag what could it be

    I use both Ubuntu and Mac . But the price fector is huge . Ubuntu 10.04 runs neck on neck with Mac OS X snow leoperd . Ubuntu has some adventages on Mac OS and vice versa .

    But price factor is huge ...My 400$ ubuntu laptop (with 0$ OS & software cost ) gives tough compitition to 2000$ Macbook pro (+about 2000$ OS & software cost )

    Now I wonder if Ubuntu was not free . What price tag it had ...

    $0. Because it's open source.

    88.42 pounds if you want desktop support, so I guess I would go with that http://shop.canonical.com/product_in...roducts_id=715

    To be more fair, you need to compare the OS not the computer, I doubt the preformance (although you may not need more) is neck and neck. Also battery life (macs are like a million years or so now, 10 hours in all hounesty). So the fair comparison is with the OS only, as you can even run them on the same computer (if you buy a mac or a compatible mac comp).

    But this not 100% since the support that canonical offers is not the same anyways, but that was not the question the price was .

    My dad paid £60 for a boxed copy of SuSE 6.4 for my 13th or 14th birthday.

    Red Hat seems to be able to put a price tag on RHEL...
    I'm a PC, and I don't run Windows...
