Editorial Being the best doesn't always mean being the most popular. We all know of many inferior products that are immensely, sometimes perplexingly, popular. However, this does not mean that one must forsake the pursuit of excellence when pursuing a broad market share. As proponents of open source software, it should not be beneath us to pursue popularity or to look to proprietary developers as examples. And by following the right examples, we can help spread the usage of open source software without sacrificing the goal of software excellence, says NewsForge.

Jophn: I'm 13 ,so not dead enough to join the dead meat at MC.You got my point though i'm sure.Freelance coding is also an option.Better to code in an inspiring environmnet that's what i actually had in mind.

Some big companies can actually be very nice. They can sometimes be better than working for small companies or even on your own.

I'm a full-time CSC graduate student at a university, but I have some friends who work for some big companies and they LOVE going to work.
