3
Contribute to open-source
The community of open-source developers is similar to a group of scientists. Most of the findings are shared with others and evaluated by them. This way, some of them become commonly accepted facts, others are denied and forgotten. That is more-less how the open-source projects work. Unlike the commercial ones, they develop much closer to the users' needs.
