There's a number of reasons I can think of
1) Altruism: Here's something that might be useful. I'm not looking to make money on this. Enjoy!
2) Bragging Rights: This is how clever I am!
3) Assistance: I've got this far with this project, and I could use some help with it.
4) Frustration: The official drivers for device X suck! I've written my own drivers for it, but if I try to publish for pay, I'll get sued into next year.
5) Education: Here's how I solved an issue. Other's might like to see what I did. Maybe improve it?
6) Scratched an Itch: I love writing software for X, its a hobby of mine.

It's not always about the money.
Keep Calm and Carry On
