Now that's a lot of money. It seems admirable to have "Support open-source projects" as their first item but I wonder what portion of that funding goes to open-source. Is it an euphemism for hiring open-source maintainers to work on integrating their projects to Next.js stack? I mean certainly Vercel aren't just donating the money away.

But I assume most of the money goes to hiring new folk. Dunno how much new engineers you can get out of it. Anyway, good for them.
