A music artists story:

The sad fact is that there are very few artists for whom any record company will spend millions of dollars. They only do that if they think they have a sure thing, and a sure thing in their eyes is the one that sells the most CDs, not the one who’ll do the best at live shows, or the one who will stay popular for the longest. They’re in it for the quick buck, not the long haul, and once you’re not in vogue anymore, they just drop your contract.

Some of the same issues that face musicians also face OpenSource hackers, now to feed the family.
