"News.com is carrying the story of the Open Source split
between Raymond and Perens. Basically their infighting is now open
to the whole world. Its embarassing really. "
not flattering, but it's interesting to see that this whole
movement is made up of people (RMS/ESR/Bruce/Linus/+ zillions of
others who often deserve even more credit but don't get it simply
because a few people are all the world can handle).
It's always been much more open than corporate software.
Anyone can be on most of the lists. That human factor can
be scary, but its often possibly our greatest asset. I mean-
if Balmer and Bill fought, would we know? Everyone knows
when Linus and Alan argue (hell, someone submits it here as a story
every time they disagree over anything) But what about if it mattered?
