My BirthDay Wish List January 12, 2012Posted by tumaix in planetkde-tomazcanabrava.
1 – That Companies that uses FOSS to make money contribute back to the project.
Here in Brazil there are quite a lot of companies that makes money selling free software, All public schools in brazil uses KDE and KDE Edu software, but nothing was donated back to the project. This is not illegal, I know that, but it looks immoral.
2 – That Free Software Projects stops fighting each other, and help each other instead.
Just like KDE and Gnome had a past of fighting and a few scratches are still made, they are making things better by creating and using standard, not perfect yet, but they are trying.
3 – That no free software project be created with the intuit of killing another free software, help the first instead.
4 – That Students around the world be more focused and willing to help free projects as interns.
5 – That Algorithm and OO teachers stops using Java for everything and saying that java is good because you ‘code once, run everywhere’, and please, stop teaching UI programming with Swing…
Those are my wishes. 🙂
