English term or phrase: give birth to ideas that might not have been profitable commercial ventures
The idea of having "one throat to choke" when something goes wrong, the legal indemnification some vendors provide against lawsuits concerning open source and the simple comfort of not having to vet one more software application can make vendor-released open source appealing. The vendors, meanwhile, tout open source as a means of helping themselves by reducing development costs and getting customers directly involved in the development process, and they even candidly note attempts to jump-start fading products (Computer Associates with the Ingres relational database) or give birth to ideas that might not have been profitable commercial ventures (IBM's Eclipse development environment project).
