Has open source jumped the shark?
AlexGr writes ""I've been a Linux fan for years, but lately I wonder if the drum beating from the big IT vendors in favor of open source hasn't finally slipped over the edge from sincere enthusiasm to meaningless - or in some cases downright hypocritical - sloganeering. The example that brought this gloomy thought to mind was a recent IBM press release touting a "new open client solution" as an "alternative to vendor lock-in". Wow. Imagine that. An alternative to vendor lock-in.""
