Dear Marco,

I don't think this is the place to discuss the ins and outs of
science. The scientific community and arena can be frustrating and I
would say (i.e., as an opinion) that you should only work in science
if the subject itself grabs you.  I left the software industry for
biology 15 years ago and have not looked back. I love my work.

We are organizing a COVID-19 biohackathon coming week for free
software and free data. Feel free to watch and join. We are
using some proprietary tools - usually they come with lab protocols -
such as sequencers - though for me I try to avoid them as much as
possible, and we can create free alternatives. But overall I am pretty
happy with what I can do in science with free software and I only
write free software! Let free software rule. 

I am excited about free hardware developments and Linux phones.
Hopefully we'll get GNU Guix on those soon.
