I guess the altruism probably comes with the open source movement. It'd be interesting to run the same poll inside Microsoft
Yeah, if you ran it inside Microsoft you'd probably find people were actually contributing.
All this Microsoft bashing seen in the open source community is really pathetic. Microsoft's Chairman gives 5.5 Billion (yes, Billion) to charity and what have these supposedly "altruistic" open source hackers contributed? Well, probably an average of a couple thousand lines of code.
So these open source people are supposedly better? Any one who believes so is completely delusional.
Criticize Microsoft for predatory business practices, criticize them for not complying with standards, but do not delude yourself into believing the company, or the people who work for it are somehow lesser than you.
Have a nice day.
