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

Irrelevant to the way that the vast majority of open source software is developed.

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

totally wrong. even the minority of software users that know how to program are hesitant to muck around with gobs of C/C++ spaghetti code that they didn't write. They either wait for the feature or find another solution.
