Allchin's Comments Spark Good Open Source Debate
from the is-it? dept
Following on the news last week of Jim Allchin’s “open source is anti-American” comments, Dan Gillmor is now saying that while people rushed to conclusions that weren’t necessarily true, it has sparked some good debate about how the GPL effects proprietary software development. While I agree that there was some debate generated, and that may have been good, based on the choice of words by Allchin, you get the feeling he was puprosely trying to stir up some controversy.
