"Includes the source code for some reason."

Because that's the way it should be. That's the way it used to be until Bill Gates ruined everything. Computer programs were treated like scientific knowledge with all of it available to everyone, with reasonable fees for related services accompanying should the author want payment. The game industry was built on source code available to everyone. Games could be ported to all the hardware that was available by anyone with the inclination and skill. Everyone could innovate with software and hardware; nothing was out of reach. Only later was it all locked away and the consumer get stuck with only a few choices of software and hardware and the resulting dependence on a small number of people to innovate, improve, or port. John Gallaugher obviously didn't accept the brainwashing that authors needed to 'protect' their source from unauthorized porting and improvement, or rather loss of profit potential as the propraganda goes.
