And now for a completely off-topic note, Joel in the article shares
my healthy disregard for many online journalists:
"... with the imbecile business journalists dripping with glee as
they copy each other's stories: "Peer To Peer: Dead!"
I've said this once; though not nearly as well.
I still often read:
" ... open source software, written by programmers in their spare
time and made freely available blah ..."
"Sun is still the largest contributor to the project with
some 50 developers in Germany, followed by Novell with about 10
contributors, and only four active community developers."
