Pragmatism is a philosophy, you know. Philosophy is so deeply embedded into
everything we do, think, and say that it is essentially impossible to avoid.
People do philosophy all the time without any particular awareness that is
what they are engaging in.
"Open Source" is based on the philosophy that royalty free, open, modifiable,
and redistributable source code is better for all concerned - as in the world

pernicious forms of proprietary software and vendor lock-in, to the degree
and at the rate such a transition is economically and pragmatically feasible.
