Graphics, User Interfaces "What if all software was open source? Anybody would then be able to add custom features to Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop, Apple iTunes or any other program. A University of Washington project may make this possible." Yeah I know, odd headline - couldn't find anything better.

The idea is naive at best.

If all software were open source, it would kill the economy.

Open source companies earn money(Red Hat,Google). Open source would never let a company like Microsoft or Apple exist. Think about where Linux would be if 10 billion dollar per year would be spent developing it?
