Sad Day

It is a sad day when a Red Hat employee is spreading FUD about open source:

Web Two-oh-eey Open Source

Good: Ease-of-use, rapid turnaround, shallow learning curve, only 4 keystrokes to a database-driven application. This category is the quickest to adopt and integrate with the latest buzzwords, generate excitement in the industry, and add an impressive "Wow" factor to developers and end-users alike.

Bad: What we have in heart here is lacking in maturity. To list: instability, ever-changing APIs, poor scalability, and ignorance of issues requiring attention for high load. Everything you'd expect from a subculture championed by 20-somethings (I'm aware of and comfortable with this hypocrisy).

Sad day, indeed.
