It's hard to know because the community's motivations are hard to measure. However, I'd dare to say that if a project is born out of an investment, there'll be a strong dependency on money regardless of the project being Open Source. Unless the project is lucky to find an investor that's a philanthropist, the main project goal becomes meeting their return expectations.
Ruby, another programming language I'm familiar with, and its popular Rails framework are the antithesis. Perhaps, there's a strong connection with the Japanese culture, a rich and old culture where capitalism has difficulty pushing craftsmanship aside. Their goal doesn't take the shape of capitalist interests wrapped in a mission statement that usually includes "better". They aim to create a foundation for software craftswomen and craftsmen that sparks joy when using it. When they optimize for sparking joy, they place humans at the center of what they do. I wonder if there's a connection between this and Shopify's approach to e-commerce, where the merchant is always first.
My principles align more with Ruby, Rails, Shopify, and the Japanese culture. Once I earn the amount of money I need to live, I love empowering other software crafters through Open Source tools. I build only expecting experiences that help me and others grow as human beings, which is what Gestalt is all about. In an ecosystem where financial interests hoard the Open Source space, there's a real need for a new long-term foundation with intrinsic motivations and humans front and center.
