  Myths Open Source Developers Tell Ourselves
Subject:   Rather like a 'rant'

I think that these 'myths' that you speak about aren't myths, because people don't believe or don't try to believe what you're saying. If your premise is correct then the open source development community is doomed because its filled with people who tried to "lie" to themselves. Seeing that this premise is not correct, in my opinion, the article is really takes the wrong approach to addressing the real problems of open source development that you allude to in your piece. That is, managing software projects so that their development is smooth and their acceptance by the public is wide.


If I also may be so bold, it seems like the author was probably involved in some difficult project that went nowhere. You can read it between the lines. Everybody in this business should get used to the simple facts of human life - on the user side, you can't get something for nothing. One the developer side, you will always meet with ungrateful people.
