I hadn’t really thought of it this way before but, if you think about it, we (and by “we” I mean Western society) do spend a lot of money on food — especially eating out. However, when it comes to software, we often refuse to pay as little as a few bucks. Why? Maybe because food is tangible and software isn’t; or maybe it is because we are accustomed to getting free software but not free food. I really don’t know. Whatever the reason, it is an interesting phenomenon.
