The Computer Science and Telecommunications Board of The National Academies is doing a plannning meeting on Open Source Software Development.
Craig Burton (former SVP of Novell) has some excellent things to say about the Microsoft vs. Open Source debate.
More Microsoft double-speak: “They can load any third-party software with no problem at all. If anything, we’re fighting for user choice and pushing hard for that.” Oh really?
Linux.com: Interview with Brian Behlendorf. “We are trying to build a process. You’ve heard of extreme programming, you’ve heard of other methodologies. Open Source development shares a lot of traits with extreme programming but has differences as well. So, we’ve been focusing on distilling that down to a science, to where we can train other companies on it and have sessions with engineers from those
companies where we teach them how to put aside the ego from time to time and share code.”
