LCA: Addressing the failure of open source
Posted Jan 19, 2012 0:53 UTC (Thu) by wdaniels (guest, #80192)
My problem is that it becomes very difficult to "say no" if you have no viable alternative, and without open _source_ there never would have been.
I agree that the FOSS fundamentalists reach a point with mere applications that they end up uselessly fixated on the wrong problem, but I don't think it has been the wrong problem either from the start or across the board.
