in reply to Open Source Funding: Developing Countries Better?

So long as whoever is organising the development in third-world countries isn't housing the programmers in the loft above a firetrap office, forcing them to work 14 hours a day or be fired, and deliberately denying them medical and social services, then I don't have an ethical problem with supporting third-world open source development. It's less likely to be causing suffering than buying a pair of Nikes.
