Open Source - says who?

Author: JT Smith

Kelly McNeill writes "UNIX has lots of standards, but almost no single standard for how anything will work. You don't have a standard UNIX shell; you have 20 of them. You don't have a standard editor; you have 50 of them. And you don't have a standard scripting language; you have 100 of them. Because UNIX has lots of standards and, therefore, no standard. So there we have the anti-standard paradox."
