I was burned on open sourcing my stuff few times, but that was long time ago and would not happen again I think. I was involved in particular MMO scene where I was coding tools, addons and fixes, some of them were open source, all of these were stolen and sold further. Of course nowadays if I was to release source to my game or a program I could sue someone for using it without permission, but... It's still unpleasant when it happens.
I find it funny that Doom and Quake was mentioned in this thread. Sources for both those games (and more ID games) were released after the next game was released and to Carmack it was just obsolete old shit. I'm very happy that he released it though, I'm happy about any old project getting open sourced and I of course applause anyone that releases their stuff to open or contributes to other projects, but I don't think I will ever do that with a major project. Not at the same time as release at least.
