I just filled in that form but I missed an option to tick which is my
main motivation to support open source: Since 20 years or so I take
advantage of many software products I don't have to pay for. Over the
years they were called "public domain", "free", "open source" or
whatever. Actively participating in an open source project is my way of
paying for or compensating some of the benefits I received myself.
