The open source developer community is a meritocracy.
The open source user community is a cheapocracy.

So, you can work and make money and be hated by everyone with less money, or
you can do open souce and have respect but the only people using your code
are most likely cheap and ingrateful.

The only viable solution is to work for the devil by day, and code at
