Why did you guys decide to go open source?

I was just curious why you guys chose to go open source? From some light digging it seems this wasn’t always the case. Did this help with sales? should answer your questions.

Thanks for the link! I’m more interested in the financial reasons. That was like a canned response about how its great for science and the developer community. Is the goal to get a bunch of involvement from lots of developers and eventually get bought out by someone? How did this affect the company financially? Or it didn’t because of investors?
