Merely disagreeing and being insulting are completely different things. His metaphors are childish at best and serve no purpose other than to belittle any other point of few (or do you agree that open source is equivalent to letting the homeless borrow your car?)
It is not open source I have an issue with. It is demanding that others give up source code
they work for, and own, while not applying the same standard, to what THEY work for, and own.
It is hypocritical to live that two-faced lifestyle, and criminal to steal commercial media releases.
Perhaps having your sacred cow read my posts, has not served you well. I have never
spoken against open source, or the generous and talented coders who share it on such
a regular basis. Read, think, post, in that order.
