That analysis is using mostly *wrong* stats to study what does and doesn't need/get funding.

There's NO correlation between the potential value of some FLO software and the cost of development. We do *not* need to fund trivial-to-develop software even if it gets used by everyone on the planet. We *do* need to fund software that requires funding *and* provides real value.

@snowdrift But it's stated conclusion has to do with the volume of money flowing into the field and its relativity to the volume of full-time developers, not projects; Your claim seems valid, but unrelated, at least from how I understood the article. @alcinnz @eliotberriot
