The decision to integrate nasty DRM most likely always comes from upper management, so the programmer rank and file have little to no say about the issue.

That's why i pay for the programmers' salaries by buying legit copies of games, and playing with cracked, patched, and 110% working bootlegs.

I even keep my purchased copies unopened, so later down the road they'd be worth something to collectors.

I started out with Gnome when i first discovered Linux in 1997. In my first job in 2000, my time was split between KDE, which i used at work, and Gnome, which i used at home. Soon after i switched to Fluxbox and never looked at anything else.

It's a shame what's happened to the Linux desktop. All that potential slowly going to waste, what with the "let's clone the windoze UI" and big egos and community squabbles and no sense of direction.
