Well that sentence at least is testable. Is there any data available as to
whom contribute what and where they are employed?

Most of the free software I use is written by somebody employed somewhere
for writing exactly that software. As you yourself are.

I don't believe that free software is a hobbyist project anymore, but would
like to see data to show me wrong.
