It's also not always obvious what the final value of a project is going
to be. Linux itself was just a grad student's toy that Linus did because
it was cool (started as a terminal emulator) and was only useful to
other geeks, only worked on very specific hardware, etc. Nobody (least
of all Linus) ever foresaw World Domination :-)
