re: Open Source Has Not Failed. Don't Cover Up Corporate Abuse of Open Source VIEW POST

re: Mark's point is that people creating/maintaining the OSS are not getting compensation from all the tech giants that use it. So big business now doe...

Aren't many big OSS projects created AND maintained by corps?

VSCode, React, Gatsby, Expo, Apollo, Amplify, GraphQL, etc pp.

Yup. I don't have much of an opinion on the subject myself. I think open source is great. I also think that many times big business can make bad or even harmful choices. It seems both authors have some interesting points. I just thought it strange how flared up this article's author was when it seems to be mostly in agreement with what it is roasting. Mark point seemed to be that open source "failed" because it didn't protect itself from abuse. This article's author seemed hung up on the "Open source failed" click-bait title and missed the forest for the trees... (Just my opinion of course). But in all seriousness, after reading both articles it really doesn't seem that Mike and Mark disagree...
