Can you morons think of developing something original. .<nobr> <wbr></nobr>.
What, you mean like web servers and clients, email, the internet itself (TCP/IP, UDP/IP), chat, <A HREF="http://www.nat.org/dashboard/" title="nat.org">implicit query</a nat.org>, DNS, etc?
Many fundamental advances in computers are a direct result of free software. In every case, they have generated more wealth than they have destroyed.
As a programmer, I'd rather program free software than proprietary software. I've found it *easier* to find work during this economic downturn than my proprietary-only brethren. And really, outsourcing destroys more US jobs than Free software development.
