Developer / company mindset

I doubt that much is going to change here.

Because ask yourself this: why do those developers and/or companies chose to use open source to power their setup? The answer is usually to save money. And I doubt that the 'aftermath' such as keeping things up to date or bothering yourself over licenses would add to that, so it's often enough ignored.
