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."

And most of them kept their day jobs so they could support themselves while working on their new inventions.

The Wright Brothers ran a bicycle repair shop while they tried to figure out to get heavier then air flight to work, for example.

Well, last time I checked, I'm not a bank. And I am not in the business of bailing other failed businesses out financial trouble. So this doesn't really change anything.

He needs to see a bank and get a small business loan.
