I know this. I'm doing some programming right now, but still only small
personal stuff because I've only just started to learn (I don't want to
break Ubuntu trough my incompetance). I started to learn how to program
precisely because I want to help out, and I also know that there's no
other way to get any of my ideas expressed.

We're not all ungrateful
I-use-Ubuntu-because-I-can't-be-bothered-to-pirate-Windows people
y'know :)


PS: Don't take that in a bad way, I just felt a bit peeved that I've
spent all day in front of an IDE only to be told I should be doing some
development :)
