This is a special thing to me. I really enjoy this process. Everything about it is great. The problem solving, the perfecting, the design, everything.I don't know how I feel about selling this. I mean, I just labored away on this code and I'm really proud of it. I understand that I can sell the rights to someone to use, which is fine. It just feels wrong to have worked on something for a really long time and then someone else owns it and I'm not allowed to do anything with something that I made. I know that the money is the trade off. It just feels like I made a baby then sold that baby.
I know that this is how I make money, but I don't like it. This is why I started open sourcing as much as I can so I, and the entire community, can benefit from my hard work.
I don't really have a conclusion, just that I'm going to try to avoid it as much as possible. There's a lot of inner struggle with all of this. Just thought I'd share my two cents.Update May 20, 2012: The thing that bothers me is writing code and selling you the code so you can sell a product. Writing code for a product and then selling that is awesome. I'm not totally against it. It's just weird. Whatever.
