want to know why the effort of these tedious work to be distributed for free
I wouldn't describe it as tedious work. I expect most open source authors find their work creative and enjoyable. In any case, you seem to be asking: why Open Source software? There is much written on this topic already; see, for example the "Society and Culture" section from Open Source (wikipedia).
