Religion? I always thought having open source was pragmatic in a deep
way. Oh, and it was there first. You wouldn't have a mail-client
without it. You would sit in the dark and pray.
For the sake of it I put in my 2 cents as well:
RME's decision to release HDSP tech info was intelligent.
Their decision to not release Fireface tech info is smart at most.
