Thats's cool. I actually prematurely stopped my point there. I was
gonna say that my idealism doesn't extend to providing non-enthusiasts
tools that they can use. And I'm pretty sure many other enthusiasts
and tinkerers share that point.
I was also gonna say that if people like polished closed software on
closed systems better than open source stuff, that's fine, too.
The important point was though that left to their own devices the
non-enthusiasts will be slaughtered by the software they use and maybe
we have a responsibility to protect them from themselves.
But then: Where's the resources for doing that work coming from?
