Article on ROS by crazy opinion-maker...

Post by Jeronimus Linuxius » Fri Feb 18, 2011 5:24 pm

I've read an article written in 2008 from Dana Blankenhorn.
http://www.zdnet.com/blog/open-source/r ... in;content

A plain stupid article, it is...
It alleges that ROS "is no threat to Windows. None at all", because ReactOS doesn't have commercial sponsors!...
Pretend Linux didn't start from a hobby project, and that there aren't tons of other successful free software projects that were and in some cases are still run on a voluntary basis. Some of them have no sponsors.
The article also mangles the "bugs" issue... As if the bug were all equal, as if design flaws were identical to stability bugs.

Really, there are people that love to talk nonsense against all evidence...
