	That is a matter of opinion. People who actually work on free
 software may not feel that way, and, since that is where the work is
 done, their viewpoint is the only one that has an affect on where
 free software is heading.

	Why should I, if it takes time away from making it better for
 my target audience? (before you ask, my target audience is people
 like me, or, more frankly, me).

	Well, if that is what they want to do.
