Windows It's been a while since the latest Microsoft-should-open-source-Windows article, so SJVN felt compelled to write one. "Although Microsoft may claim otherwise, Vista, from both from a technical and business point of view, is proving to be a failure. Why not turn it over to people who have shown time after time that they can deliver the goods?"

Why not turn it over to people who have shown time after time that they can deliver the goods?


Sure we could turn the Windows Source over to the Debian team, and then the operating system could take 2 years to come out. Oh wait that already happened so what is the gain. And what is this nonsense about open source developers delivering the goods? Honestly both open source and closed source have seen their fair share of failures as well as success.

Open source != success, Closed source != failure, and it is a little insulting to everybody from the software developer to the CEO that works on a software product for profit to insinuate this.
