I was starting to type, "The biggest beneficiaries of open source are also the biggest contributors," but then I realized AWS doesn't make the top-10 contributor list, but is arguably #1 on the beneficiary list 🤔

I think you know that I'm a (big) fan of AWS. So I'm *hoping* they will do more (and not because it's good for some nebulous "community" but because it's good for AWS. However, I know from current exp that's non-trivial to teach to a successful co)

Same. Even though the long tail will bite em’ hard if they don’t straighten that activity considering the other legit providers have their reputation laid out in a positive light. People WILL shift loads and when it happens, it’ll hit hard.

But thats a closed source service? With open source products they generally haven't done this, in the cases I know about, with a small number of exceptions.

The point here is AWS started out offering the open source version of Chef, then did a partner deal to offer the commercial version.
