We've been singing the same song
I guess the song is named "Better a closed tool or none tool?".
What some guys here forget: Some of us do programming not for fun or as
a hobby, but as a job. And these are REALLY good. Merlissimo is one of
these, he is a professional programmer, he does it for live. Some of his
tools need to filter huge amounts of data, which can be hard work if you
plan to do it fast. Knowledge in this field of programming is worth
money – lots of it. Merlissimo is allowed to use some of these
algorithms and/or liberies in his tools (which is VERY kind).
You can not just exchange these parts of a program in an evening
session, it can take months or years of research.
That’s the reason it can sometimes be a good idea to allow
non-open/non-free-tools. Because there is no open/free/gratis/libre
alternative that is as good.
