Computers, Software

If you can’t beat them, sue them!

I had to laugh a little when I read this article.

“Plaintiff Daniel Wallace had sued the open source giants, contending that they had conspired with the Free Software Foundation and others to offer their wares at an “unbeatable” price (read: free), thereby squeezing competing alternatives from enterprising software writers like Wallace out of the market.”

It really is a shift in paradigm to see an enterprise software company worry about the quality of the free alternatives. Open source software DEFINITELY has its bugs, but has it really come that far?
