  Milking a cow doesn't require formal education, dude!!!  If you just
churn out code, it will remain code only. You add to it this philosophies
that it becomes the pet of human minds.. free software needs / has all kinds
of people. now *free* and *open* are not resctricted to software, it will go
to other areas of human activity as well, eventually.
  Coding is a way you can contribute, but if you don't advertise who's
gonna use your code???? You have to find the users or Users have to find the
coders.. either way.... either M$ like comps create monopolies or fsf like
organisation help people save hell lot of money.

I give up... i give up.. I give up...

I see free software as a means to expand my knowledge. I really don't
care about commie stuff. We don't have lawyers, advertisers, artists,
social workers or cow specialists here. All we have is a bunch of kids
who code. Tell me Binu, will you be able to achieve anything with your
cow if you aren't a cow surgeon ?... contribute to free software by
coding free software :-)
