if only the millionares and billionares benefit from receiving information to make improvements to the so-called open and free software stack, then the ecosystem has truly grown up to become captured and will soon gain all the market benefits of other supply chains -- such as ensuring you have inexpensive salmonella spinach on your table from purchased from a smallselection of vendors. But not safety, security, diversity, and choice. Some people should be ashamed of themselves, but they probably purchased options.
