People ask us why RunAs is open source. They are typically asking about our business model: conversion, product roadmap, monetization strategy, etc.
From our experience as engineers since many years, there is no other choice to open source by building a viable software company serving modern development cycles. The fact that these businesses have been built with proprietary software doesn’t exists anymore like Microsoft or Apple for their respective operating system.
Open source is by design more secure, interoperable, flexible and community oriented. We think open source can be a huge help in building our community, widening our marketing, increasing the quality of your code, and building software people love. But we must be clear in our ideas of what you’re trying to accomplish and what we’re willing to do to make it happen.
As a motto, RunAs is open source because the right to learn and share is fundamental to have product growth and relevance.
