Response to: Partly bullshit

Building a community is just as difficult as building a customer base. This foolishness is the reason why excellent software developers toil away in obscurity. Just because you have something great doesn't mean that other people will think its great, understand it, use it, be able to support it.


Having a good product doesn't mean you '*will*' attract a community - it just means you have a good product. Many many good products die on the vine each year while SPENDING MONEY MARKETING the product.
