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.

And here I thought that the preceding message was satirical.

Linux and Mozilla are both open source. The since point of decision isn't a liability, it's a necessity -- if multiple people could check in changes, there would be (at least) redundant changes.

Also, if a comittee ever took over Linux, Linux would die. Haven't you ever heard of design-by-comittee? Good products are invariably from the mind of one talented person. If a team produces a good product, you can be certain that it's utterly dominated by a single person.
