I often find myself asking why it is that so many OSS users and coders seem to think that everything should be OSS. I mean, OSS is great, and I do think there is a great place in the computing world for it, but it cannot, or should not, be seen as a be all and end all.

I find that the best projects that use OSS are those that combine fine proprietary systems or programs with OSS foundations the way OS X does. I have yet to give SkyOS a try, but I can definitely see myself using a system like this in the future, and the fact that it is not Open Source does not bother me at all.
