Loudmouths irrelevant to Open Source development

Author: JT Smith

Interesting essay at LinuxPlanet talks about how even though many Linux boosters yell loudly into the "all proprietary software sucks" microphone in public, when you start reading actual developer's email lists, where the real work takes place,there is a surprising amount of courtesy shown to people who come from proprietary software backgrounds and want to get involved with Open Source. Just possibly, notes author Michael Hall, the ones who talk big and the ones doing the actual work aren't the same group. (Not that you didn't know this all along, right?)
