Free Software is a protest movement. Open Source is a weapon. I can see a significant constructive element to Free Software, but I can’t see any with Open Source. Linux is not a success to be repeated, just like Microsoft is the last of its kind.
In both cases, however, men in suits with their ties so tight blood supply to the brain is cut off believe they know what caused these successes and attempt to emulate them through some incidental quality that has nothing to do with the success.
