Are you still on good terms with some people at HP?
Yes. Has anyone discussed this with Bdale?
I wouldn't mind getting paid well for the work
I do, but that's a rarity. (Why does money always need to get involved?)
I've been successful at
1. feeding my family
2. keeping my ethics
3. working full-time on Free Software and its issues
I wish everyone could be. It's not easy, and the means I have arrived at
wouldn't work for very many people.
I admire those who don't have to consider money while fulfilling all
three of the above goals.
Yes, but let me add something. I think we will have failed if there is
only one company doing this. No lock-ins, no lack of choices, please.
That's one of the things wrong with RH/Fedora.
What I'd really like to see is a company providing input, serving as a
central point for customer contact, and above all, actually
*supporting* the use of the end-product. ie: not being hostile to users
who run it, as is so often the case these days.
And I think I have the structure to make this work. I'm writing now,
should have something for you later today.
