"A great number of free and opensourced applications is not a bad situation. Moreover, it is a good one. But what can you say about its quality? Yes, Emacs is a high quality program. Yes, Mutt and Pine are as well. Anybody can list really good quality programs. Now write another list - poor quality programs. Try to get all latest stuff written by the wide set of Open Source software developers and try then to use them. Problems?.."

"As for me, I see a huge number of bad quality programs, and this does not please me. Does it please you?"

"I propose the following Right Way - OPEN SOURCE / UNIFIED PROCESS. If you are an experienced commercial software programmer or manager, you ought to know what is RATIONAL UNIFIED PROCESS and Rational's (http://www.rational.com) software. RUP is a methodology for software modeling, testing and documentating. It helps producing a high qualitaty software. But Rational suites are commercial and written for Windows(tm) platform, so you cannot use Rational software with Linux, e.g.

"Finally, I'm glad to invite all interested developers and software designers to participate our new OPEN SOURCE INITIATIVE - OS/UP project."
