Well like I said he has a point. OpenBSD is always perpetually on the point
of being out of money. Theo himself lives quite modestly. As many have
pointed out the fact that he is a total asshole (no-one disputes this, even
Theo. He knows he's an asshole and he likes it that way) and that seriously
cuts into any donations they may get so they MUST sell the distributions and
the books and memorabilia to keeep afloat. I have no problem with that.
I think he has plenty of right to make money. He's made this his lifes work.
You get payed for your lifes work right?
I think the central problem really stems from the fact the Theo is and
always will be a loudmouthed self-righteous, rude, backstabbing asshole
