   Every Critisism is valid. We shouldn't attack people because they don't
   know we should educate them.
   That is why FSF and all of us are here. To educate people on why we
   need Free Software.
   Nobody is going to listen to you with this attitude.

     Miles Fidelman, what's the point of being so rude? Your comments
     were mostly un-constructive, and the fact that you aren't able to
     entertain the OP's opinions says a lot about your abilities to
     criticize. The OP has a good point, that free software is largely
     restricted by funding, and while you point out some large successful
     projects, most free software projects are not like that. A very
     topical conversation this month is about LibreOffice's funding.

   Some newbie know-nothing jumps in, mouths some uninformed bullshit
   opinion & rains on our parade, and I'm being rude? There's lots to be
   said about the economics of software development - free & otherwise -
   but bullshit is bullshit, and deserves to be called out.  Otherwise,
   they don't learn nothin. Fie I say.  Fie. Miles Fidelman
   In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In
   practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra Theory is when you know everything
   but nothing works. Practice is when everything works but no one knows
   why. In our lab, theory and practice are combined: nothing works and no
   one knows why. ... unknown
