i accept that free software is often far behind it’s proprietary analogues. we, the society must learn to not take it for granted.

we must pay to the creators to support their work. we must hire developers around us to contribute our desired patches. we must set up bounties for necessary features.

thus we will encourage development of free software.

because free doesn’t mean free-ware, it’s not as free beer but as free speech.

software requires investments like tree requires water.

if I were a leader of a software development company, I would make sure every project has a team which focused not on new features, not on development of the product, but on improving it.

I have an impression companies don’t invest in improvements, as if they cannot afford doing that. But if they were, they would have valuable advantage on the market.
