To my experience, there are three distinguish type of people who evolve around Open Source for following:
- Carry the true meaning of it, to make, share and to do whatever they want (freedom and usefulness).
- It’s their way to reaching more people, gaining fame and to brag- even if they pretend to be humble and generous.
- It’s their ultimate business model- they try to show the beauty of it, but intent to take advantage of that only for money.
More or less, it’s great to up for fame, money along with that pure happiness of creating and sharing.
I’m ‘fortunate’ enough to engaged with so called ‘people’, the more they expressed their ‘love’ for open source the more turns out they were after the fame and/or money- nothing else matter to them. At time they always stubbed other ‘partner’ or ‘contributor’ for their ‘benefit’.
Whoever claim they are doing ‘open source’ only because of the beauty of it- that’s the culprit. Mark ’em and careful-
