In the News Okay, so this is entirely new to me. Sparrow is was an email client for Mac OS X and iOS (and Windows), which brought a decent Gmail experience to these platforms - as opposed to Apple's own not-so-good Gmail support and Google's Gmail iOS application which, well, is just a webpage. Google has now acquired Sparrow, and basically all hell has broken loose, to the point of Rian van der Merwe writing that 'we' lost "faith in a philosophy that we thought was a sustainable way to ensure a healthy future for independent software development, where most innovation happens".

I can't recall me saying - in this article or any of the ten billion that came before it - that you shouldn't use closed source software. Heck, I use closed source software all the time, and write about it, too.

I think you're the one being the zealot here, with kneejerk responses, without actually thinking before you post.
