    Shame on me, but I write software for money.
    Am I going to hell?

    Nope it is all about freedom, you are free to sell your code if you so wish.

    In effect the OSS does not write software for free, it is simply a
    collective work. Rather than being paid in $ for my bit, then having to
    buy the other bits to get a complete operating system, I get paid in
    code, so I guess worst case its tax avoidance....

    So actually I guess I should expect the IRD knocking on my door...(I
    believe some Tax dept somewhere actually made a comment on this (UK?)
    that they would like to collect on OSS).

    regards
