OSS and the Profit Motive
A new way of thinking about software
Just to share the perspective of a kid: to me it is not new. Since this year approximately, I have used (and been conscious about it) F/OSS for half of my life with computers. Although I know the history, and am plagued by non-free, closed, software almost every day, I'm unable to see F/OSS as a new way of thinking, only not as archaic as the painful alternative.
Now if only there was a way to convince the ignorant, stupid, non-geek part of "my generation".
