Well I agree with that..
I think things like Officeapps, Games etc..
Its easy to bring them in charge..
I pay the 70$ for a game Like Q3, or RRII no Q.
But i think the hohle System, every thing witch is nessesary for a plain system should stay free..
Like drivers, or Soundsystems, or printing systems..
Charge the appz np. If a unit does good work.
But i think a thing like the OSS (Open Sound System) should stay free, because its a part of the Base-System, for such a work there should be another way to pay those guys..
Maybe they can make an agreement, with some Game creators.. dunno..
Community makes good software, not people...
My apinion is that all together make good software not a
person or a group of people.
If hacker a makes a littel script to update DNS from DHCP
Server, the script is just a script..
If hacker b adds some features, he needs at his companie,
he gives the changes back to a, which improves the script...
Hacker 3 would add some speed to script, because he thousends of Addresses to change... and so on..
The point is, its getting to get a good piece of software.. If there would be a charge on the script or the software, Hacker b,c,and so on.. had never checked out the work from a and had never improved the script to a small piece of software..
Finaly without OpenSource, there wouldn't be a Linux, we all like, nor would there be a perl or apache or similiary Software..
Maybe there would be somthing like BeOS, with just a bit of Software on it, a small system for just a small group of guys, which aren't able to make the comapines tasks running for just a few hours work in a month..
