Ethics and principles

Many of the values and tenets of the free and open source software movement stem from the hacker ethics that originated at MIT[5] and at the Homebrew Computer Club.[citation needed] The Hacker Ethics were chronicled by Steven Levy in Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution[6] and in other texts.[citation needed]
Hacker ethics are concerned primarily with sharing, openness, collaboration,[citation needed] and engaging in the Hands-On Imperative.[6]
Linus Torvalds, one of the leaders of the Open Source movement (Known primarily for developing Linux's core), has noted in the book "The Hacker Ethic"[7] that these principles have evolved from the known Protestant Ethics and incorporates the spirits of capitalism, as introduced in the early 20th century by Max Weber.
