These licenses are sold by Waibel to their customers instead of
new licenses with every PC they sell. They estimate that there are
approximately 10 millions usable operating systems, which became

with an operating system. "10 million operating systems represent
however a restaurant value of well 2 billion DM, which one should
not waste ", argues Waibel. In this way Germany can save 2 billion,
otherwise to be spoiled to a certain American company.
