But isn't this exactly what we want?  Business is fine and all but Linux was 
built largely by volunteers doing it for fun.  And volunteers are usually 
willing to help port stuff if it isn't too difficult.  I don't see any reason 
to shun amateurs and hobbyists if they're willing to help out.  I'd like to see 
Fire running under GNUstep too.  How hard would it be to convert the .nib files 
to .gsmarkup files?

But my point is: why should they have to leave drawers out?  I know some people 
have a religious hatred for anything Apple has ever done; but you'd think the 
devil himself had come up with the idea.
