Open Source 'Fundamentally Superior': Red Hat CEO James Whitehurst

,----[ Quote ]
| Q: Does your age bring any advantages or disadvantages to your work at Red
| Hat?
| A: It was a bigger deal at Delta. Red Hat is such a young company in such a
| young industry, that I almost feel like an old guy. This is certainly the
| first company I've worked for where I am above the average employee age.
| Q: What can come from the collaboration with IBM?
| A: We believe that open source will continue to take share away from
| proprietary alternatives, because it is a fundamentally superior development
| model. Open source develops better software faster and at a lower cost. Over
| time, this will pervade most areas of software.
