LXer: Mixing free and proprietary software: not a rosy future

Published at LXer:

A recent article caught my eye and turned it a nice shade of red. It discussed the hardly new idea that the future of software usage must involve a mixture of free and proprietary products something the writer refers to as “mixed source”. The piece was entitled “Mixed source - the best of both worlds” which may give you a clue as to where I disagree with it. The article was an opinion piece by Steve Harris, senior director for open source products at Novell in issue 78 of Linux User & Developer magazine. Sadly it’s not yet available on-line and I don’t honestly know if it will be. If it is I’ll post a comment with a link here so you can read it for yourself.Freesoftware Magazine
