software market diversity
Authored by: sjk on Feb 26, '06 09:16:01PM

So, you're implying there's no middle ground in the "*nix community" (which I've participated in for ~30 years) between free/opensource and full-blown commercial software? That kind of elitist view of what the software market should be annoys the crap out of me (if I may borrow your words), and probably a few developers and potential developers, too. And it almost sounds like you want sympathy for Apple leaving a void filled by shareware that it seems like you now depend on, yet are critical of?! Sort of a twisted combination of disappointment, greed, and anger.

Or, what exactly did you mean and what would would the software market (for OS X) really have to be to satisfy you?
