Sometimes software is better developed with 5 guys with offices right next to each other, with a manager that can crack the whip, and they have incentive to stick it out (pay).

the same office can produce code which is open source. witness novell,redhat,ibm et all

99.9999% of people don't care about source code. They think people that view open source as a religion are crazy and just want to use software tools"

not true. this is just myopic like saying people dont care about being able to do customisations when necessary
