How rich are you?

In our world, software is just as important as steel was 100 years ago. Who owns the software is the key to your riches just like smeltering plants were many years ago. With Linux costing nothing, how can people not feel rich. Linux people don't have to worry about paying next years fees, just to access their data. Linux programmers don't want money. They, like me, are passionate about freedom. Freedom to use your data year after year. No need to ask permission from some company. To make money they form communities. Ebay is the biggest and Grant's site is probably the smallest. I am part of the Ubuntu community. It does not cause my gross income to increase but my expenses are less due to less software expenses. Thanks Ubuntu, I can now do what the big boys do with out the software costs.
