And it's clear you don't read our messages in this thread. You've
attributed an invented quote to me, then insulted me for something I
never said. How rude.

As I *have* said before in this thread: I *am* running a successful
business that supports multiple people; I have created profitable free
software products, and am putting R&D into new (and I think innovative)

Am I listed in the Fortune 500? No. That isn't my goal. It is possible
to be a success, and contribute to humanity, and grow a business,
WITHOUT megalomania.

Do I believe everything "free software advocates" preach? No.

Do I believe all the anti-copyright, anti-patent rhetoric? No.
