Yeah, good point this could use some definition. When I say programmer I mean
people who are actively involved in the creation of software and spend most
of their time writing code, this is much different than someone who sits
down at their computer and wants to download and use software. When you are
intimately familiar with the inner workings of a program, there are not many
things that bother you. If there is a bug then you can re-write the code (or
talk with one of your buddies that does), if there is a function missing you
can request it and write it yourself. While I would love to do these things,
I do not primarily work with computer languages to produce software. I
usually use C to develop firmware for embedded systems, which is vastly
different from software creation in an object oriented language. I think
there is a disconnect of people who produce the code for the program and
those that use it in most 'free' software projects because once they get it
to a working state that suits their purpose, then that is good enough for
