There's something different about OpenSource people 

,----[ Quote ]
| It's actually kind of unfortunate that many of the folks who work on 
| providing OpenSource software don't get the recognition, or at least the 
| respect they deserve.  
| Starting with Linus and moving right down along to your local "community" 
| distro developers, the overwhelming majority of the people involved are techs 
| and admins and programmers who don't see what they do as just a job or a 
| hobby.

Weapons Of Mass Collaboration

| The dominance of Windows was questioned by 40,000 volunteer developers, with
| Linux, open source becoming a new way to innovate. The otherwise strangers
| became partners with sheer joy of sharing. The “Linux philosophy” is being
| applied in large enterprises as well, which now feel even larger by including
| supply chains in their innovation. In P&G’s “connect & develop” program, new
| concepts are discussed with experts located across the globe, but are at
| arm’s length in a virtual world.

| are we doing? Forty is less than 60, so I don't like it. ... We have some
| work to do."

| If I ask you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?
| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that.
