OS choices


Well, yes, I get paid, but I get paid whether or not I work on the MEGA65, so the argument doesn't hold entirely (although I understand the point, and accept that it makes my situation rather different to most contributors). However, working as an academic does give me more freedom to offer student projects in directions that I want to explore. Of course, I have to have some rational justification for this, which for the MEGA65 comes from our "Security through Simplicity" and related initiatives.

The key is that just as unpaid volunteer, no member of the community can compel me to implement some particular feature (which doesn't mean that I don't listen to them, or implement various features that people ask for, indeed, I have implemented quite a few features that people have asked for).
