*POINT – COUNTERPOINT SPECIAL* What’s Wrong with the Open Source Community?

LinuxWorld has an amusing “Point-Counterpoint” debate with two editors decrying the same features as bad or good. The complaint that “there’s too much stuff” ignores the opposite problem of there being much too little. This debate is an interesting contrast to the article I pointed to earlier this week, arguing the cultural underpinning of the two sides are fundamentally different. It reminds me of a debate between a liberal and a reactionary where the liberal believes the reactionary is entitled to their beliefs, but the reactionary doesn’t believe the liberal has the right to believe what they do. Perhaps “what we have here is a failure to communicate.”
