sa110: When people write software as a hobby, in their own free time, they are addressing there own interests and requirements. When those interests overlap with your needs, everyone is happy, when they don't you moan.

People don't just code for financial gain, a few hundred or even thousand quid return for a RISC OS app that they don't want to write isn't really worth it, when they could get no return and write something they want too.

Although I'm not a huge ESR fan, this doc might help you understand coders motivations a little more. [link]
