LXer: Open source: Driving change in the software industry

Published at LXer:

If you look back at the defining device of the 20th century – the automobile – it’s easy to compare its growth and impact over the last 100 years to the transformational shift we’re witnessing in the software industry. Think about it. Produced by Henry Ford's Ford Motor Company from 1908 through 1927, the Model T was generally regarded as the first affordable automobile. It was immensely popular, despite the fact that consumers had few features to choose from. The car came with one type of engine and a limited number of body styles. And Ford’s “any color as long as it is black" policy was famously implemented in 1914, limiting the color option to just one. You paid for your car with cash, and you got what you paid for. Period.
