I don't think the FOSS community should start to use lock-in tactics just because everyone else does. We should do what we believe is right, instead of trying to achieve Pyrrhic victories.


I understand your point and thats mostly how FOSS project development operates today. It works well but not for the success of alternative platforms.

Perhaps Linux could only move forward in the respect to adoption if a new software development ideology were formed; an idea that focuses exclusively on innovation for FOSS platforms like Linux.
