    I demand that technicalsteam open sources his bank account. I further demand he open sources his house so that we may party there buying beer and pizza from the aforementioned bank accounts.

    Quoted from Enaud:

    Guess I wasn't making my point clear. Microsoft putting Excel out as open source makes about as much sense as Stern putting out their software libraries as open source. Others could poach the code for their own purposes and benefit ($$$$$$$).

    Your point was clear. But some open source advocates don't want to hear that opinion, so they ignore it. In my opinion, most open source projects that are not able to monetize themselves through a decent support stream end up abandoned. Open source programmers are great at starting projects... but they never seem to be able to fin... oh, a butterfly.
