Don't you think Linux comes from another approach of living ????
>> We may even make enough money in
>>> the process to pay some of our community members and help them to be
>>> productive and motivated.
>> If there is a need for this, then start something like the Blender
>> Foundation, and make a decent plan which tells us why we need money and
>> how we think we'll gain the money.
> Are you suggesting that no one round here needs money?
If I read it correctly, it was not mentionned, see 3 quotes before...
> Why do we need to create a foundation in order to generate income?
Maybe because of the FLOSS principles ???
> I have a plan and my plan involves owning the Linux Digital Media Channel.

I have A LOTS (yes with an S because many) respect to your work for Free 
IT, because your
name was one the first and very mentionned when I started to focus on 
Linux. That said, and
I don't come back in respect level be sure, don't you think life made 
you forget some ?
What you purpose with all that commercials is NON SENSE with FLOSS.
Please, tell us on this subject, and about your plan, please.
