You're right, if you produce and sell proprietary, commercial software for profit, you can obviously have motivations other than making a profit. But your primary motivation is in fact to make a profit. Otherwise, it would not be proprietary, commercial software.

We should not make assumptions about each other, as we do not know each other. But secondly, you appear to be the one living in a bubble. I'm just calling like I sees it, and clearly, you're living in a bubble, lil spaceman.

My main focus in IT is more along the sysadmin, and penetration testing lines, rather than software development. So the services I will be producing, are not going to be programs that I have written, in large. Yes I do plan on further engaging in capitalism once I start my professional career in IT, but that is an act of pragmatism. You see, I'm an Anarchist, but a very pragmatic one.

But making money is not my main motivation for what I've chosen to study, and engage in. My main motivation comes from my ethos, not the desire for pesos. I'm not sure if you understand the concepts of volunteering and community, or the concept of trying to change the world.
Again, my main point is that you only seem to interpret the world in very simplistic, cartoonish, binary, manicheist, belligerant cow-boys VS indians, "Us vs Them" views. Just because one thinks A is ok, doesn't imply that he thinks B must be wrong.
"If you're accepting money for your work, you're a vile egoistic capitalist enslaver and hate charity and social participation" . "If you believe in social services and public benefit, you're a vile communist-stalinian, Gulag-Lover, Freedom-hater"

I honestly never understood that line of thinking, and probably never will. Maybe it's a cultural thing, I don't know.
To me ( and a majority of people, depending on the countries ) , a lot of things are "Us AND Them". A lot of seemingly different things and ideas (and people) can absolutely co-exist harmoniously without having to destroy or vilify each other to justify their own existence.
So no, I absolutely do not believe that every software developper that commercialises his/her work or every farmer that sells his tomatoes is devoid of ethos and only cares about pesos.

It's like some people NEED enemies to justify their own life choices. No enemies, just make them I guess.. politicians are very good at that.

Riiight. I'll just leave it at that then. Maybe I'm a pragmatist, but a very anarchist one.

Again, you are getting hung up on what is not the point. I understand, you don't get the point. I know, and that's fine.

Cheers.

Holy tangential thread! Well, there likely are as many reasons for creating free and open software as there are people doing it. FWIW, the reasons I do it are:

a) I want there to be no barriers in folk accessing and using the apps I create
b) Because of my passion for this field, I want to do as much as I can to promote it and encourage others to participate, so by making the source available it allows folk to examine what makes it tick so that they may learn from it, build upon it, be inspired by it - in short, it helps them gain their own traction
c) No matter how 'good' one gets at programming, there is always some aspect of it which one can improve, so by making the source available I learn from others' modifications and suggesstions
d) The more I explore the more I realize how much more there is to explore, so I'd rather devote all the time I have available to this process, and not be burdened by considerations of how to monetize, monitoring that it occurs, and taking on the additional responsibility/commitment that 'paid work' implies
e) People tend to want to protect that which they fear the loss of, but again this possessiveness comes at a certain 'mental burden' cost. For me, it is literally a release from this when I release my efforts into the public domain. There's original work here, but I don't have to worry about who claims it theirs, or uses it in a commercial product etc
f) We all develop a set of skills based on our interests, and we all decide which of those we'd exchange for income and which not. In my case, I simply choose not to be employed for audio DSP or software development or directly charge for the results of their application (and this would remain the case regardless of my financial situation)

In short, constantly learning, exploring and discovering - which can result in the furthering of knowledge - and then sharing this knowledge and creating products with it that others may find useful, is its own reward

Am pleased to announce I've evolved another sound synthesis technique I've coined 'NHT' (Nested Hyberbolic and Trigonometric functions synthesis), and here is a video I just posted explaining what it is, showcasing the free softsynth I developed which implements it (out soon), and demonstrating some of the unique and interesting sounds one can make with it

Very cool stuff! Keep exploring.

Have you explored the 3D aspect of 2D waves (waves are really spirals in 3D), or different encoding techniques (e.g. QAM)?

Respect, this is great stuff. I'ma play with the code, some day my day-job programming skillz will translate to music software...
