    The real trouble behind the open-source debate

    In response to the July 25 column by Brian Behlendorf, " Open-source brouhaha: Missing the point":

    Very good article. Sadly, I believe that too many people in the open-source movement are anarchists who just can't stand the thought of anybody owning anything. This makes them terribly inflexible in their approach to software licensing issues.

    Then there is a second contingent that simply hates Microsoft and sees open source as the means to destroy it. This group is also not particularly open to reason.
