"When one open source developer complains about corporate
influence on a project, it's not necessarily a danger sign. It's a
big community full of a diverse range of opinions, and some folks
are easily agitated or provoked to anger when things don't go
entirely their way — and generally do a good job of
broadcasting their displeasure. So I take it with an enormous grain
of salt when one developer complains about a project.
"But in this case, the drumbeat is loud and coming from several
projects. MeeGo has done a pretty good job of alienating most of
the downstream projects that would re-package it and help MeeGo
gain some traction in the developer and FOSS user community."
