I really like Open Source. No, I love it. Most of the applications I use on a daily basis are Open Source. Not that I’m a very active member or developer of the community, but the spirit behind Open Source is just great.
Free software… free as in free speech, not as in free beer. Well, that is the GNU definition of free software. But Open Source can even bend that rule somewhat, with the free beer projects by FreeBeer.org and [project 21]. You can buy the booze or brew it yourself. Now that’s the Open Source spirit at it’s best. So now, we still won’t have free beer, but free beer instead.
Too bad I don’t drink… but luckily there’s the good old OpenCola as well.
