Try me! I was one!
Don't you dare think that cos I'm on C9 I'm a Microsoft zealot that needs educating!
I developed for Linux for years believing in the free model till some joker said my code was his, the difference being he was selling it and there was nothing I could do because I had no cash to pursue it. I felt like a mug. Ain't capitalism great?
So why am I on C9, well I keep my eye on other technology development forums too.
I don't want to turn this into a Linux/Microsoft rant but needless to say I'm not pro anyone now ... just myself and my company. I pick the best OS that fits the business requirement these days and that can be Windows/Linux/Unix/zOS/OSX so frankly I don't give a monkeys and I believe this is the way we all should be!
