blah blah blah So people should work for free as in beer ? I don't care if software is free. I don't care if its open source. I just want it to work. As for cost, well beer isn;t free either. I do like having the document formats being open source however. Thats one thing that should be mandatory. Its my data. OpenOffice Libreoffice, same god damned thing isn't it ? except libreoffice is a fork of openoffice, though I forget when specifically this occured. You can't give me a copy of openoffice and libre office won't do my books.
