I didn't understood Eric's post like that. I think that making
a software for you and then making it available for all is one thing,
but asking for someone to do it freely for you is another...
Just my 2p.
P.S.: For those interested in OS war (I'm not), you could also say that
buying a big PC with Linux, will let you money for a commercial software.
Those who are looking for freeware for Mac have no more money 'cause
the Mac is too expensive ;-)
