Precisely what I was thinking. If people are willing to "spend cash"  
they should just use it to buy the hardware they need.

The whole "bounty" thing with Open Source software is crazy IMHO. I  
could make a good case for bounty offers actually reducing the  
chances of the code being written, because the developers are  
somewhat insulted by being offered less than they could make flipping  
burgers at MacDonalds for a week in exchange for something that is  
worth perhaps tens of thousands of dollars in the commercial software
