"In the ongoing debate between open source purists and people
who appreciate and defend proprietary software, extremists will

applications can co-exist peacefully with open source ones. There
are several trends boosting this fair dinkum version of the
software landscape, including the growing ease with which open
source and proprietary titles can work together in heterogenous
network environments, and platforms aimed at consumers that embrace
the sharing of proprietary and open source applications."
