“Sometimes it seems that Linux fanatics are the open source movement’s own worst enemy. Perhaps it is time that the “revolution” started to employ a few marketing people.” Read the editorial at ITWeb. Our Take: I agree with the author. There were many times that I asked articles, interviews, screenshots and other “marketing” material from maintainers of open source projects and they either never replied, or they replied… months later, or their reply was rushed and half-baked. Real companies or people who understood the importance of marketing, were truly responsive. Marketing is important, and each major open source project needs at least one good marketing/PR person.
