In contrast, think about what things would be like if you had to
negotiate with each utility's author on terms to get their software

Note that in cases where they have "dueling licenses" where the
software is supposed to be "free for personal use" and "pricey for
commercial use," differing definitions would make it pretty much
impossible to have something like a Linux distribution, and Linux and
the like would likely be mere historical curiosities...
