This is fundamental to using computers.  If you have source code, you have
a choice:
	1) fixing it youself (if you can) -- resource time
	2) hiring somebody else to fix  it -- resource money
	3) hoping the vendor fixes it	-- resource hope

Most people don't  understand the value of paying for these fixes
and having control.
