While I agree that *this* is the solution - not proprietary platforms
such as Steam, writing games that rival the leading titles in the game
industry today is completely non-trivial. It requires a lot of talent,
and the good news is - we have that. However, this talent needs to pay
its bills like everybody else. So until we have a feasible and proven
way of funding free software game companies, we are stuck with hobby
hackers and artists. This means we get a lot of cool things, but most
of which will leave us wondering what if...

As such I believe it becomes obvious that the current area of research
and experimentation needs to be how to we fund free game developers.
We need pioneers, and we need them ASAP.
