b) The Blender Foundation has money left over after paying the wages of several full time developers. The entire "They are poor volunteers" schtick is complete and utter bullshit.
Thank you for assuming that I am unfamiliar with blender and don't know how to use it, moron.
"Having money left over" and "Having a steady and guaranteed income" are two completely different concepts. At some point those paid developers will need more money. If they had more resources I'm sure they would hire more developers.
Instead of complaining, get creative! Use blender, create tutorials, promote blender and beginners will get something to learn from.
