Look at the Linux 2.6 process - I would call that "Fast, cheap, good". It's not perfect, but it's damn fast, it's still F/OSS and it's still /very/ good.
I wouldn't call the 2.6 process "fast, cheap and good". It might be fast, but it's certainly not good (the last usable kernel for me was 2.6.14) and definitely not cheap - I'd like to know how many kernel developers are funded for their work on the kernel. I think it's not a particulary low number.
