What does "out of choice" mean in this article? Does it mean, he didn't have other choices?


I recently concluded a 4 month adventure of living from my car in Silicon Valley. Don't listen to the naysayers. It can be done, and it will save you a ton of money. I did this out of choice, also while bootstrapping my startup.


In this case "out of" means because of, he's saying his lifestyle is the result of a choice. The phrase "out of" has many meanings and you see it used in a lot of different contexts. The link provided lists the various ways "out of" can be used, and includes the because of meaning I mentioned.
