Er, what precisely are you trying to say?  That if one follows the 
free software ideology one can't think about technical superiority or 
making lots of money?  I'm sorry, I don't agree with that at all.

Please remember, free software isn't some communist/socialist 
platform -- it's about freedom, and works as well in the context of 
capitalism as in the context of socialism.  I'm a capitalist -- I 
personally make money from free software, and I know enough other 
people who do too.  Haven't suffered from any self conflict or 
contradiction yet.
