LXer: FOSS and the Free Market

Published at LXer:

One of the things I've heard people say about free/open source software like Linux (fortunately, not in person) is that it is communist/socialist. Admittedly, RMS linking to every left-wing cause in the world on his homepage doesn't help. In reality, though, free/open source software is the best way that software can be handled in a market economy.
