I was a strong open source proponent in the past, but in the past few years I’ve gotten lazy.
I primarily use Windows on my desktop and commercial office suites. To date, few open source projects have received particularly strong reviews.
There has been a lot of discussion over whether or not it can chip away at Windows’ dominance on the desktop. Though well received, these efforts are considered a bit of an “also ran.” I’ve used Linux in some way, shape, or form for something over 7 years, so I’m not exactly new to the platform.
But, having begun digging deeper into what “open source” means today, I’m compelled to state the platform has come quite a long way!
