Open Source should not be assimilated to LibreSoftware

Richard Monson-Haefel says http://weblogs.java.net/pub/wlg/942 … So the price of freedom of expression for most, if not all, open source developers is well poverty. Ok, that's a bit of an exaggeration since a lot of open source developers have a day job, but that's just as telling. To do open source, you have to have a day job. You can't expect open source to feed your family or even your cat for that matter. As I said there are exceptions, but most open source developers do it for the love of writing software. While commercial software developers do a great job of feeding their families, open source developers do a better job of feeding their minds. In the end, you have to ask yourself which is more important: The things you own or freedoms you have.
