Novell and Ximian "Last month, Novell decided to push the limits of developer empowerment and perform an elaborate experiment in innovation by liberating the company's entire Linux engineering team for one full week of free hacking. During Novell Hack Week, hundreds of skilled developers employed by Novell at various facilities around the world worked together on open-source projects of their choice. Driven by creativity and passion instead of deadlines, instructions, and executive decisions, Novell's best and brightest created impressive new software and added innovative improvements to existing programs."

I'm rather surprised. Novell has taken the initiative to do something very cool for a) their developers (I'm quite a bit jealous), and b) the open source community, and you're complaining because the devs chose some projects that you wouldn't have had them work on. Wasn't the whole point of it that they get to work on what interests them, not what someone else tells them should interest them?
