"The picture is very different for the open-source
world. When a small open-source projects such as Coccinella issues
a new release, you may at best see a review by a blogger or by some
obscure local computer magazine. It gets slightly better with
bigger projects which may attract the attention of several bloggers
and a dozen computer related news sites. Even more, the real big
projects may sometimes even go a bit further. However, no
open-source project approximates what Apple and Microsoft do. No
pregnant women's magazine writes about Firefox 3 and the television
journal will not be interrupted for a boring interview with some
geeks about Ubuntu's Intrepid Ibex. How can we copy the marketing
successes of Apple and Microsoft to open-source?"
