Re: In other news, wheels reduce friction
@dcawrey - I think open source sounds great from the consumer angle, and from the shared advancements angle. But the profit angle could be challenging and for that reason alone, I could see it being slow to develop.

Re: In other news, wheels reduce friction
I'm wondering when we are going to see more open source hardware. Facebook championed that approach, but it doesn't seem like vendors have totally figured out how to capitalized on that.

Re: In other news, wheels reduce friction
I agree. Even the worst can work well enough to justify its sale, especially if it's cheap.

Re: In other news, wheels reduce friction
@Shaunn - I would bet the "worst" would be purchased because it's the cheapest. There are always people out there willing to buy from a sale.

Re: In other news, wheels reduce friction
It's really interesting to see this shift from closed networking systems versus this openness we are seeing today. 

Exciting developments for the software-ization of networks!

Right on, it's not about how good the good is necessarily, but why anyone would even buy the worst.

Shaunn, batye,

Oh, I wouldn't go as far as saying the free market favors the best. It's more like evolution -- DISfavor matters more than favor. Many grotesquely inferior and second rate companies survive for generations. What does happen, though, is that those that nobody would buy if they weren't forced into it vanish very quickly when whatever has been forcing customers into their grasp goes away.

I agree, open source will bring companies with customers in mind closer to their users and those without away. The free market favors the best.

DCawrey,

Well, it's the end of a lucrative arrangement for vendors who wouldn't be voluntarily chosen by clients in an even contest. But those are the ones that are likely to pass unmourned.
