The "public domain" works of olden days were usually distributed in binary form, without source.

Yeah, that's right. For some reason it didn't seem anyone cared about the source code.

P.D. stuff was free and legal software, that alone was enough to make most people happy.

Most P.D. stuff I got was on floppies stuck on magazines (which caused immense cover mutilation when removing the floppy). As we didn't have the Internet to download from this was the best and quickest way to get hold of new and recent software.
