My desire isn't that you leave, it's that you become a part of the
community by sharing your code. People are offering you expert advice in
this thread, but you offer nothing to the community in return. Your binary
is nothing; it's ephemeral, it's an artifact of the code you keep hidden .
There is no future in your closed-source software. People don't want to
invest their time in working with a tool they they aren't allowed to
understand or fix when it breaks. You may appear willing to fix/improve it
now, but how long will that last? When you accept advice or request
feedback without sharing your code, you come off as a parasite--and I'm
tired of hearing about this software (much as I'm tired of hearing about
mixbus, reaper, etc.)

Certainly, there are people on this list who do not really care about
freedom, but there are practical concerns as well as philosophical
ones--freeware does not inspire confidence.

If my software is irrelevant than no one should care about the source
code, no?

If your feelings are pretty much the general feeling here then I will
go.
