Re: Arabic Book Based on Red Hat 9 By Faisal Yousuf



Salam,
I believe you got it wrong, Elzubeir.
His attitude is not wrong. There are many people who do it already.
He is *not* from this community.
Open source is not Linux only. and Linux based projects are not automatically
open source.

As for M. Nabil's answer. He should look a little at the page he is
referencing.
2. Source Code
 should exist.
3. Derived works
 modifications and derived works should be allowed.
And I am not sure that any open source license banning MS Word is not violating
10. License must be technology neutral.

For the record, I have not read the book (except the first page and skimming
for the license).

I believe we have another offer now for a book. We will take that instead.
