Not everyone has your celebraty and can ignor the economic impact of their
decision making. People need to eat. And as free people, they will make
decisions based on bread basket issues every time.
Factually speaking, part-time volunteers develop most free software.
They need to have money to live on, but it is not necessary for free
software developers to be making their income from the free software
development they do.
When we can find more ways to enable people to have jobs developing
free software, that is very good. I support efforts to work on making
this easier. I just ask people not to paint the situation as
desperate when it isn't.
