Discussion on: In defence of (some) fragmentation

I think software dev is the only place I've heard people complaining about too much competition and so many asking for more oligo/monopolies, it's really weird to me. I think some people are convinced that instead of pair programming you put 20 programmers instead of 2 it would be faster. I wouldn't work faster with 10 more people working in the same thing with me. And what I find more strange is that the "fragmentation" argument is in the FOSS community, if someone ask themselve how awesome would be a *NIX OS with less "fragmentation" they should just look at iOS, that's exactly that, why not just use Apple's "unfragmented" system and let the FOSS "fragmented" way to do things, it has worked so far, quite good I would say.
