Don't worry too much. As the trend goes, there will be more and more
proprietary software used in developed countries made in developing

It may even come a time when it is easier for a software developer to join
a development of an open source software than a proprietary software
(since he/she join it as volunteer), and therefore an open source software
will have more developer from developed countries than proprietary
software. :-)
