Re:Not competing competition?

Doesn't seem THAT stupid to me, I knew what they meant, and if you read the definition of 'compete':

compete: (km-pt)
intr.v. com·pet·ed, com·pet·ing, com·petes

        To strive against another or others to attain a goal, such as an advantage or a victory.

Google is not striving againt SourceForge to gain an advantage or victory. So... what was so stupid about that statement? Providing an alternative choice != compete unless by offering that choice your goal is to hurt the other parties already offering choices.

Just my thoughts...
