[[MichaelDeHaan|Michael DeHaan]] contemplates the complexity of software projects and how to encourage new people to get involved and contribute.

Sure, we'd like to be 100% Free, and we're working towards that every day, but actually being 100% Free is HARD, especially if you want more than 700 MB of packages."
