Power Struggle

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 14, 2002 12:52 AM
Using some kind of power analogy:

Windows rules -- with an iron fist. Windows is dictatorship. Linux "feuds" show signs of a democracy -- though in fact I acknowledge that it is not.

At least, the Linux community openly debates, communicates and collaborates. The result is not perfect -- like democracy -- but I've seen nothing better.

The Linux community doesn't need the same thing as business -- though if businesses can find ways to succeed in conjunction with the community, so be it.
