I can understand that some grew up where closed source code was common (while copying was also common.) But , I still see some people wishing to make their software free but without source code. Please note that this is a valid choice.
I have a different point of view, maybe because I'm in academia. I like to share everything that I can. BUt it is also true that many programs I have done, I have not been able to share, because who owns the rights, does not allow me to. With this said, my current project that I'm working for my PhD Thesis, I will make it totally free and open source.
There is money to make with free software. There is money to be make with closed software. Both are ok. I primarily used a mac, so I should know about closed OS
However, with so few of us compare to general tech population, I wonder why don't we make all the software 100% free with source code available. AND NOTE, there are various projects out there already with code.
In general, I'm not saying that is good or bad, but I would like to know what people think here in the community of A8. I think either position is just as valid.
I'm looking forward to know about people's opinion about this subject.
