    A point missed here is the positive PR that developer discussion can bring to a company. (I have lifted this point from the slideshow about Google that is floating around). Google Code brings Google a lot of good attention from the discussions of the developers on the open source projects hosted there.

    Smaller companies like 37 Signals also benefit from similar PR they got from developers using their Ruby on Rails.
