FSFLA: Linux kernel is "open core"
Posted Nov 10, 2010 2:50 UTC (Wed) by lxoliva (subscriber, #40702)
Professionally, I still devote a significant amount of time to developing GNU software, which I'm happy to be paid by my employer to do. Personally, I volunteered time to maintain various GNU and non-GNU Free Software projects for some 15 years before I got involved with FSFLA, but now most of my spare time is devoted to political activism for software freedom. I consider that fighting for freedom and training the next generations to care for it is far more important and more valuable, in the long term, than most software development tasks I'd be qualified to undertake.
