The rapid spread of free software has produced prosperity in the real world

,----[ Quote ]
| One result of this legal obligation to share has been the rapid innovation
| that has characterised the rich growth of the worldwide web. Through mass
| collaboration on complicated problems and through idiosyncratic innovation on
| the edges of the network - each of which relies on software being free -
| robust and reliable applications that power real-world prosperity and growth
| have been created.
