LXer: Microsoft's Apple Mistake, Apple's Artificial Image, Open Source ...

Published at LXer:

There is just something weird about a community of people who promote "open" who don't want to be open with their own names and qualifications. Openness is supposed to improve quality, but if we don't know if a person in a discussion is actually qualified to talk on a subject, wouldn't you think the result would be lower quality? [I do wish he had given a more specific example of the contrived IDs he's referring to. How are these people driving the discussions? And how does this impact the quality of FOSS? Has Enderle been smoking the poinsettias laying around the office? - dcparris]

Fear of being sued my money/power-hungry monsters that run the big companies over "patent" infringements, perhaps. Open-source heavily relies on the internet, and the internet is one of the last places you should reveal your name.
