Survey regarding Open Source

Hello everyone,

I am studying at the TU Berlin and for a case study, we would like to understand the motivations behind open sources, to answer the question: What are the primary motivations driving individual contributors to participate in the Linux open source software project without direct monetary remuneration?

Our main focus is Linux for now, but still we would like to understand the general motivation not through simple research on the internet, rather by having some real data from people, who are working or participating in a open source project.

Regarding this, I would like to invite those people, who are working on an open source project to participate in our survey.

I would really appreciate it.

Kind regards,
