sounds like you think that developers of OpenSource projects are mostly
persons that spending their free time on the project.
This is not quite right.

My situation is a bit more complicate:

- I started developing on the phpgroupware project for from my full time job
  here at probusiness.
- But I am also spending some of my free time on the same project

Also I am working on another Project called jShopz.
This one I started in my free time and then when I moved my full time job
to probusiness I brought it with me - so that I can work on it during my job
well as during my free time.

But maybe I am the only one who is doing such things ;-)

And last but not least I have my own small company where I also can use
these OpenSource
Projects ;-)
