Free software and programmers exploitation
Danijel Orsolic writes "Some people worry that free software/open source movement leads to the developers being a new âworkersâ class exploited by the free software companies. In the time when big companies such as RedHat, Sun, HP, Novell etc. are proving how economically viable open source business model can be, some people wonder whatâs up with âpoorâ free software programmers and developers who happily contribute their work and source codes to the community for the sake of freedom and bettering the whole society without getting anything in return, economically speaking."
