Why Do I Prefer Free Software And Why You Should Too

Why do I care if program is free software as long as it works?

It may stop working and you'll have to go beg your vendor to fix it. And it may not necessary be still around, or have any wish to fix program for you. And it'll be too late to choose other program by then.

I'm not a coder, I don't have any use for the source.

Even if you can't tell integer from float, chances are somebody else will have similar problem and will fix it. If you have money, you can even pay somebody to fix the problem for you.

I'm not going to ever need this program again, it works right now and I don't care if it breaks later.

If you are absolutely sure, OK.

Games should stay closed source to avoid spoilers.

Is somebody holding a pistol to you head and making you read sources? Call 911 then.

Software companies that make closed source software today will go bankrupt if FOSS wins!
