Says you. I think you should spend the next year in a Cat in the Hat
suit, but I doubt you'll comply.
Programmers doing that work for paying customers generally do what the
paying customers request, not what the programmers decide to give
them. Any possibility for immorality in the process would be better
pointed at customers, not programmers.

egregious immorality in using Windows? I think they're foolish for
doing that, not immoral.
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
