I'm a dad and full-time Drupal geek. I'm a foss freak -- but I'm not cheap. I believe the world would be better if more Apple and Microsoft users would stop justifying why its better to feed proprietary monsters rather than contribute to making linux better. I sometimes start conversations that way too,,, :-P
Some of the best software in the world is open source... Firefox, Apache, WebM, OpenSSH, Virtualbox, GIT, Inkscape, Drupal, Maemo, Ubuntu, Geany. It all could be.
