Sheesh, people think I'm crazy if I tell them I'm working on a piece of
free software. They ask questions like: "How do you/they make money?" and
"What's the use?".

I'm not sure if you mean to explain free software in the introduction, but
those are questions people always ask. It might also be a good idea to
compare the concept of free/open software to free/open science and
information. If the concept of gravity was patented when Newton discovered
it, what kind of world would we have today?
