Open Source Definition

A few months ago I found phenomenal definition of open source (translation from Czech):
Open source is will to abnegate a part of your profit and possibilities in order to let others benefit from it and to invest the future. Open source raises from profusion and conciousness of your profusion (intellectual or material), it is privilege not duty. Open source is life-style realized via conciousness, that you are able to produce more than you need. It is opinion that some resources must be shared not only in their creation, but also in their usage and that payoff doesn't have to be immediate, but it is future foundation. Open source doesn't mean neither software for free nor free software - it is sharing of sources, and that source can be software, but it doesn't have to be. It can be also castle.

Cool, don't you think ;-)
