There's a geat community connected with open source software - something
that proprietary companies can only dream about cultivating.
People are willing to help you out more when it comes to open source, I
suppose because people have helped them out, or the software itself was
given to the community.
Maybe it's all to do with the good karma that giving away your work creates.
