Couldn’t agree more. I have had conversation with so many people who think all software should be free, always. And they devalue programming and programmers because so many programmers work for free. I understand that for some programmers this is a hobby and they don’t mind doing free work. But a lot of programmers contribute to open source so that they can get a job. This only devalues our work.
