Thank you for your concern, but as an open source developer, that is the whole point.
Why would I bother with the (not always trivial) task of open sourcing stuff that I write or fixing/improving stuff that others have written, if nobody is going to use it?
Someone else may make more money than I off my own code? So what? Having my project picked up by the big boys is still a net win as it increases the project's visibility, prestige, hands available and, where applicable, revenue.
Don't worry about us, hobbyist / independent open source contributors, we're doing just fine.
