Storyboard Text

  • I sure am happy we've finished making our computer software.
  • Yep! I am also glad. Let's walk to the water cooler.
  • So I guess we'll be releasing it as open source software tomorrow.
  • Yeah, yeah, I guess we.....wooaahhh….did...did you just say 'open source software'? Oh dear, you clearly have no understanding of anything.
  • Excuse me, Mr Knight Man! Open source is clearly superior! It's free for people to use and other programmers can edit the source code, making the software far better than we could ever dream of making it!
  • To the sweet shop!
  • So here's the deal, we get more money from releasing it as proprietary software, and there is less of a chance of people making modifications that ruin everything. Furthermore, it's better for our customers, because they get more support.
  • Oh gosh! Why have my clothes changed? And why are we at the gates of a medieval castle?
  • What are you on about? Your clothes haven't changed, and this is the house of Mr Big Boss Man.
  • Oh great Mr Big Boss Man, should we use open or closed source software?
  • OH, IT IS I, BIG BOSS MAN. I AM YOUR BOSS WHO TAKES YOUR LABOUR, AND PAYS YOU BARELY ENOUGH TO LIVE, IN RETURN. FOR MY BENEFIT, YOU SHOULD RELEASE YOUR NEW SOFTWARE AS CLOSED SOURCE SOFTWARE, AS IT MEANS I GET MORE MONEY. MWUHAHAHAHA
