I already talked about why I think free software is a bad idea. Now we turn the tables. Open source and free software is abundantly used. I love firefox, thunderbird, open office, eclipse etc and it saves money. So many of the startups would not have been possible without open source and free software. It provides fuel to innovation as developers don't have to reinvent the wheel. These are all good things but what about the people who contributed in building it. The idea sounds a bit communist...from each according to his ability and to each according to his needs.
I ended up using google and see what I found....
The next search was on how to make money from open source.
