Funny. Most people grasp it when you talk to them about it. You can see it in their eyes. They simply lit up when you talk about it, like a fire ignited in their soul. Perhaps it's a danish thing to understand this so easily. A good ol' tit for tat-deal (which is basically the engine behind OSS as in all other freedom-oriented aspects of life).
