"Standing on the shoulders of giants" - yellowTAB releases open source software
Large software projects are the work of the work of lots of people: someone has an idea for a good program; others join in providing improvements and over time a the collective product takes shape as something that no single programmer would be able to develop on their own. When using something like this it is reasonable to expect the results of any work to be made available under the same conditions. This is the principle of open source software.
