what is advantage to publisher of opensource


What is the advantage to the developer/publisher of OpenSource who publish his code on the internet?

What benefit he is getting out of publisahing his copyrighted code of software?

This will only give advantages to other who use his code. I am confuse what is the need for the developer to show his creativity without any consideration?

Regards

Dear Mika,

 

Opensource is an ideology that information and resources should be available freely to everyone should not be in the hands of few to make commercial gain. This would also suggest that the developers of opensource softwares are not looking for commercial gain but are working towards their ideology. 

 

As an example, take up the case of Open Office. Since the developers did not want the product to be commercial in anyway, as soon as Sun was bought by Oracle most developers left the project since the suspected that the project would no longer remain non-commercial and fully opensource. They instead developed another open source office suite by the name of LibreOffice.

 

As for the funds to assist them in their development projects they mostly rely on donations. 

 

Hope this explains.

This is what Open Source means actually:

1. More traffic

2. Greater Pay per click to the open Source guy

3. Open Source guys want their code to be copied as by millions so that pay per click of millions using their open source add millions to the open souce guys. Google, Facebook ,twitterand other Social Networking sites are making billions because of foolish peole us [but we can't live without them] .

 

THUS by offering 100% free Services they are actually making Billions of Dollars.
