Stop right there! The luser community doesn't produce developers (at
least such cases are very rare). I'm no where near a developer, yet I'm
even further away from being a luser. Given a few years I may/will
become a developer, but until then I'll still be classed as geek, junior
grade on Linux full fledged on other sysytems.
I may not develope, but I sure contribute to the best of my ability (buy
the CDs, evangalize, and only carry hardware that is linux friendly).
