This was a much bigger response than I was expecting. I herd Stallman say that he was not opposed to software that is sold for a profit. But if all source code everywhere is always free to everyone I would expect it to be nearly impossible to bring home the bacon, since everyone who gets that freely available source code would no longer need to purchase the software. Am I missing something here?

I just watched this interview and heard Richard say that he does not support open source. http://youtu.be/uFMMXRoSxnA I thought the entire world of GNU and Linux was mainly open source based. Could someone please explain?
