I'm amazed as usual

See, I'm not against OSS and I plan to release something myself (and I already did). The amazing part is those kind of people all answer the same way to (to be honest) same questions.

When you're talking about how you WISH things to be, you have easy answers. When you check reality, things get a bit harder.

He wants to explain CIOs but avoids to explain why many companies shut their doors after investing into producing OS software, including many major Linux / other software sellers.

He avoids to explain if OSS has a life on its own of that is just synthetic because of dollars pumped by weknowwho.

I'm starting to suspect they are not sincere anymore and they perfectly know the trap into which they're trying "CIOs" to fall...

Of corse OSS has a life of its own: creating and sharing is a inborn human instinct.

Of course. I'm talking about the "business" part of it, which is the argument of this article.

Development is a mix of arts and,as all arts, will keep going on. My questions were related to the business area, not development in general. Sorry if I didn't make it clear enough.
