With open sources, u r not paid what u work for and you are not paying Taxes. Coding, buying/selling if you are not paying Taxes, I argue, how u will have a healthy economy and job creation... That means, u r breaking the entire cycle here. So, it really a Materialist vs Idealist thought going on...

    How do you explain the Mozilla Foundation, which is apparently making quite a bit of money?

    How do you explain the open source tools that I work on as part of my job? They aren't the main focus of my efforts, but I depend on them, as do others, and my support for them is often performed during work hours. The company benefits from them not breaking.

    I think you have an overly simplistic view of the open source universe. The world isn't Black and White, but rather shades of grey...
