For instance Chrome and Internet Explorer are both proprietary applications. And before you get on me about Chrome not being proprietary I wouldn't consider any program which includes non-free bits free software.
Who cares? Even Firefox is developed by a tight group of developers who can pour anything in the absolutely massive codebase. I don't think there is any practical difference between free and non-free. That something is proprietary does not automatically mean that the makers want to screw you. I don't know why that attitude is so widespread in Slashdot. Both parties, free and non-free, strive to create a product that works for the users.
It will help prevent your game from having a generic feel.
It's interesting that you point that out. I have also noticed that I can put my finger on some games and know that they have been made with Unity. For example, The Long Dark or Shelter. Great games but there's the certain "Unity feel" in them. I'm not completely sure what makes it.
One tip for those who are using regular VS though. Not many know that there is actually an integrated hex editor.
In the "Open File" dialog, select a file and then choose "Open With..." from the pull-down menu in the bottom. A new dialog pops up from which you can select "Binary Editor".
For OpenSSL, that day was April 7, 2014, the day that Heartbleed became part of the security lexicon. Heartbleed was a critical vulnerability in the venerable crypto library. OpenSSL is everywhere, in tens of thousands of commercial and homespun software projects. And so too, as of last April, was Heartbleed, an Internet-wide bug that leaked enough memory that a determined hacker could piece together anything from credentials to encryption keys.
“Two years ago, it was a night-and-day difference. Two years ago, aside from our loyal user community, we were invisible. No one knew we existed,” says Steve Marquess, cofounder, president and business manager of the OpenSSL Foundation, the corporate entity that handles commercial contracting for OpenSSL. “OpenSSL is used everywhere: hundreds, thousands of vendors use it; every smartphone uses it. Everyone took that for granted; most companies have no clue they even used it.”
To say OpenSSL has been flipped on its head—in a good way—is an understatement.
Heartbleed made the tech world realize that the status quo wasn’t healthy to the security and privacy of ecommerce transactions and communication worldwide. Shortly after Heartbleed, the Core Infrastructure Initiative was created, uniting The Linux Foundation, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Dell, Google and other large technology companies in funding various open source projects. OpenSSL was the first beneficiary, getting enough money to hire Dr. Steve Henson and Andy Polyakov as its first full-timers. Henson, who did not return a request to be interviewed for this article, is universally known as the one steady hand that kept OpenSSL together, an unsung hero of the project who along with other volunteers handled bug reports, code reviews and changes.

Not necessarily. For example, I could be eating vanilla ice cream day after day, but if I one day experimented with chocolate ice cream, I might say "yowzers, I didn't realize how awesome this is!"
Same thing with jobs. We might find new aspects of working if we introduce more of the other gender into the workplace. Who knows, right?
