I found this incredible article on why Microsoft is winning against Open Source Applications. Please refer OreillyBlog. The point discussed there are very much true, with the intent of developing new and easy way of doing things, OSS community has done so many different things, that many people don’t even know what they are. I knew that Ruby has something to do with web but nothing else. Have you guys heard of Groovy, Groovy on rails, Ruby on Rails? Also, Python on Planes??? Well, yes the last one is a prank but still, the author has a very good point.
I have made it a point to deal with these issues in
my our distribution.
