1) false, if we have an interesting platform for them to develop on, they
   will certainly notice it and develop applications for it.
2) large software companies don't need us to adverstise for them. Otherwise,
   it will just show we are not confident in ourselves enough to develop
   free programs to replace their proprietary ones.
3) prostitution is not a good way of doing things. Promoting proprietary
   programs is just plain prostitution. It's like saying "hey look daddy, 
   I can play as good as you". But we *need* to replace "daddy"'s way
   of doing things.
