A quotation from Richard Stallman

“The straightforward and easy path was to join the proprietary software world, signing nondisclosure agreements and promising not to help my fellow hacker….I could have made money this way, and perhaps had fun programming (if I closed my eyes to how I was treating other people).  But I knew that when my career was over, I would look back on years of building walls to divide people, and feel I had made the world ugly.”
