Me, I'd feel a lot better about that, because paying money for proprietary software.. it seems like it's just going into some black hole. For code that will be Free some day?

It's all worthless to me now. At the end, they taught us to type in qwerty on Windows, but I use colemak and Ubuntu now, so even that's of no use to me. If none of the girls I met at school marry me, I may consider it to have been a waste of my time.
