"You get what you pay for" is a "rent seekers paradise" meme.
"You get what you pay for" applies in the proprietary software |
platform | app world.
In the Free Libre and Open Source Software world, often you pay zero
and there's some expectation that there may be a greater learning
curve, though this is by no means certain;
and there is always access to the source code, along with certain
modification and distribution rights to that source code.
So in this latter case of FLOSS, you pay no $, but you get very great
/ significant freedoms. You might make some sacrifices, but over the
long term, you get collective benefits for those sacrifices.
The "you get what you pay for" meme is a leading phrase in that it
leads the speaker or listener into a dichotomy around money - pay
money and get benefits, pay no money and be treated as the product
(i.e., get treated badly) - but this is all in the context of
Services around FLOSS software can provide "pay $ for it" options for
those who require or need this, and can afford the dollars, and the
long term benefit of this is an industry built around freedom and
rights respecting technologies. More such long term thinking might be
useful at this point in history.
