probably i should emigrate somewhere else...

try to ask 75euros/hour (no VAT) here in italy... no-one will give  
it  to you

you can reach 300/500 euro/day ... no-more

and bodyrental market (continuous income) cannot go over 250euros/day

italian taxation is about 48,5% for me, i'm a freelancer ... that  
means 125 A DAY!!!
(when you are lucky...)

i can earn more, making prepackaged installations, that what i want  
to do... to give them away for free, and to earn on customizations...  
but what if a competitor of mine asks me for my toolchain??? i'm not  
going to give it away for free...

someone can please ask to redhat his toolchain?
or to ubuntu? or suse?

can i get access to their compilation cluster?
