Opinion: He's still amazed at Open Source phenomenon

Author: JT Smith

From a column at "I'm still amazed at the open source phenomenon. This unlikely method of developing software works amazingly well for a process that seems to resemble nothing so much as a form of voluntary socialism. I have never seen a business model operate this way. Certainly not in a capitalist country like the United States, where Linux is extremely popular and Linux companies are being funded with the faith that we can somehow make money off it."
