New release: 1.3.10


There exists a class of users for whom free (beer) and free (speech) isn't enough. They demand that code perform to their exact specifications. They are either not coders or not willing to learn the code. They expect the author to do any and all work to make their desires happen. For free. On a schedule. Because open source.

You can not please such users. I don't even try. When I receive such demands for software I've written I point them to the github repository and tell them to have fun.


As I've suggested before, perhaps open source authors should back up from their 100% free stance and go to a 80%/20% rule: fulfill the mainstream 80% requests that everybody needs for free and then offer premium solutions for the outliers in the 20% zone.
