"Everybody's talking about the "open software revolution." From
geek forums like SlashDot to academic journals like Communications
of the ACM, from the New York Times to The Wall Street Journal,
everyone is saying that there's something important going on."
"The leaders of the open-source movement argue that their way of
doing things will change the world of software development forever.
Detractors question their leadership and attack their ideas on
business, logical, economic, political, sociological, and other
grounds. The hubbub is rising so fast I've seen good friends worry
that open-source software may destroy their way of life by making
it impossible to sell software or write it for hire."
"I'm not at home with the rhetoric of any of the factions.
I'm not a radical, I'm a programmer. You say you want a revolution?
You can count me out."
