SuSE, Red Hat and others pay open source developers.  SuSE and for
example pay Hans Reiser to develop the Reiser File System.  SuSE also pays
Kurt Granroth and Waldo Bastian to develop KDE.

We're even crazyer, we just raised an entirely non-profit company for linux
stuff. We even hope (just hope) we get the investements back... 
What we need is *much* and *big bandhwith* space... Who knows whopays for
the LFS space?

man page and all kernel documentation, as a test to prove himself and to

some bandwith on comp.os.linux.* ( Honestly, I haven't done this all yet )-:
