Linux SymphonyOS, one of the more refreshing Linux distributions, is in trouble, since its lead developer is in financial troubles. "Core symphony development is currently stalled as I am without electricity in my apartment. I need to raise some money this week in order to have electric restored and cover some expenses. Project donations are greatly appreciated and any referral for paying projects are greatly appreciated as well. I have really big plans for symphony in the near future that will hopefully blow some larger distros out of the water. I cant wait to share them all with you."

He did have a job; he left it so that he could work full time on Symphony. If you had read the article (rather short), you would have known this.

I didn't know I was reading slashdot.

Why should we pay for his foolishness? I mean, I respect the work he's done so far, he did do something nice with his project but leaving your day job to work on an open source project full time wasn't really a bright idea. Unless somebody sponsors you to work on your project, of course.
