I needed GIS software on my laptop at home to do some of my socialist work. I went to the ERSI vendor website to see how much their GIS application cost, and how to download it. All the mother effing website said was to call one of their sales agents. Probably during business hours, so the dude could tell me I needed to fork over 800 dollars. So I want to the mapview open source project website, from Idaho State University and NOAA and downloaded an open source, free version of GIS. In five minutes. Completly free, no royalities, no hassles, no sales people to call, no nothing. What the f do those communist public research scientists and civil servants think they are doing, giving this shit away for free?
