better newsreaders if there was obvious profit to be had instead of myriad
That is, giving away all applications and source code for free
This weekend I am going to be watching several DVD's I recently bought. Could
work on a newsreader instead, a newsreader that is 90% done and has several
features a lot of people have told me they'd like to see in a newsreader.
But the possibility of making any money on such a thing is lowered by the a
availability of free altermatives that get an unfair break because they are
"free". I enjoy working on my newsreader, but I also enjoy a lot of other
things, and without any clear profit motive there is no real reason for me
to finish it. So I allocate my free time among several different hobbies of
mine, such as horror movies, books on religious history, fiddling around on
newsgroups and in the small amount of time that remains, working on the
newsreader. Thus it never gets done.
If I thought I could make good money with it, I would try to finish it. But
what's the point right now?
