While many commercial software developers are loosing their jobs due to lay-offs (do you really need 10 PHP developers?), we who develop software in our free time will thrive. While startups shrink and venture capital disappears, our work will continue at it's usual speed. We will probably even gain contributors due to the abundance of developers with savings and no day-job. Since we our driven by necessity and not money, open source will thrive when the commercial software industry freezes over.
