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).
