More Mozilla FUD - This Time From An MIT Professor

Monday October 18th, 1999

Mike Cusumano, co-author of "Competing on Internet Time: Lessons from Netscape and Its Battle with Microsoft" and professor at MIT's Sloan School of Business Management has an article at Computerworld titled "Mozilla gambit reveals risks of open sourcing". Just another in a long stream of Mozilla articles written by someone who doesn't seem to be too terribly interested in verifying his assumptions.

Thanks to Luddite for the news.

Who sets the schedules in Linux? Who decides if a feature is in our out? Who decides if code is checked into the CVS server? These are all Linus' decision, and Linus' product "Linux" is the driver in the process. All other non-Linus interests are secondary. Linus has too much control of Linux and Linux won't be a true open source project until Linus' control of this project is removed and the Linux development team becomes more democratic and representative of all the people involved and interested in Linux, not just Linus. etc. etc...
