makes Eric Raymond
(one of the last of true hacker & the father of open source) a job offer !! Read Raymond’s reply
to it, it is too good 🙂
MS is trying its old stupid tactic of dealing with competition. First ignore them, if that does not work then try to shut them by buying them out. Unfortunately for MS this is not going to work. Seriously open source is the greatest threat to MS
which will lead to its doom. Why do I think so , because of late open source (a.ka. peer production) is being seen as serious contender of dominant design for modes of production
(not just digital) for 21st century.
