Free and Open Source Software overview and status update

#1 Post by Midas » Mon Feb 18, 2019 4:49 am

A perfect (if quite long) introduction to the heights and pitfalls of the FOSS scene -- any newcomer will find adequate mentions of outstanding characters and plenty references for further inquiry.

On the surface, the open source software community has never been better. Companies and governments are adopting open source software at rates that would’ve been unfathomable 20 years ago, and a whole new generation of programmers are cutting their teeth on developing software in plain sight and making it freely available for anyone to use. Go a little deeper, however, and the cracks start to show.
