Quote of the Day
"It is better to develop no software than to develop non-free software." - Richard M. Stallman, kerneltrap interview.
Well... on some zen-like, unrealistic level; yes. However, when one has bills and the only skill one has is developing software... good luck with that point-of-view Mr. Stallman.

Of course, I suppose if I were to adjust my lifestyle a little I might be able to pull what he is describing off.
Re-read the article:

Richard Stallman: Non-free software is meant to be distributed to the public. Custom software is meant to be used by one client. There's no ethical problem with custom software as long as you're respecting your client's freedom.Meaning, doing custom development work is OK AFA Free Software is concerned. So you could earn a living providing custom development work for customers while supporting/providing free software.
