The thing about open source by Bijan Sabet

I think we need to aim even higher with open source movement. It’s not just about an open source version of Photoshop or Windows or MS Office. It has to be bigger and more ambitious than free and open. It has to be better.

I’m a proponent and critic of man Open Source Projects. Some projects like PHP, Perl, Apache, Linux, MySQL, are very successful and provide very capable solutions to enterprises and small businesses.

Other projects like GIMP and OpenOffice are a disappointment. They are poor alternatives for the products they are meant to replace. They are the “poor mans” software. The poor deserve better.
