Re: Open source is cooperative "internet"

'Used to think "open source" is like "communism" where everybody does the work and nobody makes any money (maybe somebody is still not making money ;) .'

Only if you buy into not making money, Communism is flawed as in being equal. It does not benefit anyone 'worker' but the whole collective as in the Corporation. They want more little workers, working for free. It helps the Large Corporations stock price soar to new heights.

Meanwhile, the 'unknown' author gets nothing and remains poor.

No thanks, I am not working for free nor working except for $$$.
