The question is simple and even if the answer lies somewhere in between, think broadly about the group of people your software projects tend to target and what about your strengths and interests makes you best to serve that demographic.

To specify, when I say "developers tools" I mean projects like compilers, coding editors, libraries/frameworks, coding languages, and I think someone here even built a browser for developers. 😲

By "end users" I am talking about projects like games, blogging tools, graphics design, video editing—anything marketed as "do it yourself" and to the general public.

I think this will be an interesting question for us here at Webwide since there seems to be a good mix of people creating both kinds of stuff.

since I'm all about money... end-user is always my priority

You first ;-)
Fair enough. :)

I'm all about creating boring software that simply works for the end user. I will jokingly apologize to clients for not making the tools I build them harder to use, so I would say that I am primarily driven by the end user. Yes, @blaq, the money is there and so are the headaches.

On the flip side, I take the same boring approach with my main software business now, though it has a developers side to it I am now starting to push more so I am currently somewhere in the middle of this question.
