Abstract: This paper will dive into this complex questionmark through a comparison between primitive hunter-gatherer societies and the everyday life-world of FOSS. The discussion will focus on the thesis that FOSS practice is based on social sharing and not on processes of exchange. This will entail a negation of the paradigm of economic logic and instead pull a quest for valuable relationships to the forefront of the FOSS sociality.
