so? where's the relevance? how does that actually affect free software?
it doesn't. the fact that some people have mortgages does not in any way
reduce the motivation of other people to write free software.

or do you expect me and other free software developers to be some
kind of bleeding heart liberal and actually give a damn about you
and your mortgage? why should I? and if i should, then why shouldn't
corporations be required to show the same consideration for your
financial circumstances?

as usual, you have one standard for free software developers (or indeed,
anyone doing anything for non-profit reasons), and another for corporate

hate to break it to you, Vic, but that's called hypocrisy.
