Are Designers Stingy?

    The highly competitive market and the right incentive structure has led the market to create open source software that is perfectly solid and sold for free.

    People generally create open source software for themselves or their company. There isn’t much open source design tools because most designers don’t code.

    Maintaining an open source project can be a fairly thankless job. I wouldn’t see it as some magical source of free software. Someone is giving up their evenings and weekends to work on it for free.
