Oh, I didn't mean they should use proprietary software, just that in
my experience the kind of people who are active in open source are
quite anti-war, green, etc. There are notable exceptions, but I know
people who worry that their work will have military applications, and
who turn down projects because of it.
You're more likely to get people who are interested in aviation with
some programming background (universities do teach coding to
engineers, afterall), than the other way around.
