I am, as a programmer and computer science professional, a strong supporter of the use open source in my projects. From an privative academic point of view, whoever wishing can find good reasons for it here, and if we are talking about a commercial point of view, Google can do the same. But, broadly, and in my particular case, it is a mere personal decision: I prefer to encourage others to follow paths I have already traveled, improving and widely exceeding any development I have been able to make. I firmly believe in human progress as a long ladder, the steps of which are resting over those who have gone before us previously did, and I aspire to nothing more than to enable others to have as much fun as I have by designing cheap, affordable and simple software to solve complex problems.
