In my original statment I meant simply that GNOME exists as it is only because it is the sytem that the GNOME developers wanted, not because they wanted to sell it.

The number one reason (for me atleast) to contribute to an OSS project is to utilze the network effect for the simple goal of making the product better for me.

Me, me, me!

Okay, to be honest, I actually get some perverted joy out of knowing that my contributions is helping other people... mabey it gives a me sense of purpose in life... who knows.

Why do you set a goal like 10x10? There must be some value in it, and if it isn't money, then what is it?
