The problem with the tech media (conventional media and tech blogosphere) is that they are way too deep into proprietary software and hit based economic models. This has resulted in way too many misinterpretations about open source. I am writing this post today because I saw another article based on the misunderstanding of the term open source. Alexander Wolfe, of the Information Week, makes a claim that too many Linux distributions are responsible for the open source mess. Lemme state here at the outset. There is no mess in the open source world. It resides only in the imagination of the media which couldn’t grasp the open source approach at all.
