Windows-Entwickler lieben Open source

Die Industrie-Analysten aber ergehen sich in finsteren Warnungen. Ein
zuviel an Demokratie könne für die Linux-Gemeinde so böse enden wie der
peloponnesische Krieg für Athen.

Stannie Holt
4:56 PM PT, Dec 18, 1998 More than half of Windows software developers, or
53 percent, favor open-source code such as Linux, according to a poll of
more than 400 Windows developers conducted earlier this month by the Evans
Marketing Services Research Group.

Another 22 percent believe open-source code is a nice idea but would
never be practical, and less than five percent of the developers were
firmly against open-source software.
...
Many respondents said they favor accessing source code openly so they can
have the freedom to change programs and add features, the representative
said. However, that freedom could turn out to be a curse in disguise,
according to analyst Joshua Greenbaum, a principal at Enterprise
Applications Consulting, in Berkeley, Calif.
...
Without a central authority regulating the standard for an operating
system or application and documenting all features and changes, the system
or program could split into incompatible versions or develop problems
that could not be diagnosed, Greenbaum said.
...
"It's a prescription for disaster," Greenbaum added. He likened Linux to
the free-wheeling democracy of ancient Athens, which was smashed by the
disciplined military might of Sparta.
