I'm not sure how widespread this is, but I don't particularly care if there is
a lot of money to be made out of FOSS. I have a job - it has nothing to do
with FOSS (no more than any other Australian business has FOSS software
involvement anyway). Linux, KDE and the other projects I work on is a hobby,
Can Linux Australia please continue to represent people like me too?
