interesting open letter.

Open Source Software economics: “Linux has been around for quite some time, yet Apple came in and created a Unix operating system with a much easier to use and comprehensive UI, becoming the number one vendor of desktop Unix in a few short years. This demonstrates another pitfall of OSS: distributed part-time development on a wide range of projects (many of them competing) does allow for more choice, but it also results in slower progress, and multiple projects with half-implemented features and functionality.” [Universal Rule]


there is quite a bit to say in regards to open source economics, but this is less economics than social issues….
