Why small and open works

Tim Bray tells a story of a Sun hardware donation to PHP site Drupal, mentioning the nervous question from donation beneficiaries of what terms the donation was made under:

Hal wrote back saying a mention on the site would be nice, “and no offense, but the legal cost of any more ‘terms’ than above exceeds our cost of the hardware.”

Not only is sharing fun and makes you sleep well at night - it's also just a lot cheaper.
