This should encourage more people to turn to open source (hopefully microsoft someday , <U hope>) because with current technologies nowadays, there is no reason to put up a price tag on any program since any software can be re-engineered to its plain source code (e.g. .NET framework applications). There are a lot of crackers too.. (clap to them). Being open source is better. Better for our own fame and the program itself as others can improve what you think perfect.
