@murph There's a lot to unpack here. It is *because* of high market share that free-world-hostile options have poured more resources into non-free software. Shifting the same resources to free sw yields better results b/c reuse trades duplication of effort is traded for more features & quality. Financing non-free sw is like renting instead of owning; the cost is a waste in the long run.
@resist1984 I agree. I'm just frustrated at more and more people leaving (or never joining) the Free software and Linux communities.
Many people seem to set the bar for acceptance very high for Linux and/or Free software, but are quite forgiving of flaws in proprietary systems.
I tend to be more forgiving of community projects, due to not feeling like I contribute enough to really complain about the state of things.
I have seen people who comes to forums demanding support and being so rude, then they are crying on their blogs because people from those forums replied so rude.
