GNU, GPL, Open Source Keith Curtis worked at Microsoft for 11 years, coding on Windows, Office, and at Microsoft's research department, before leaving the Redmond giant. Call it a revelation, call it giving in to the devil's temptations, but he's now a complete open source and Linux advocate, and in his new book, "After the Software Wars", he explains why open source will prevail against Microsoft's proprietary model.

Pure economic theory says that a free market in the long period makes everyone sell for for their marginal cost.
In software that is nearly 0.

Also I think sometime that capitalism just was not made for intellectual work.
