M0n0wall comes tumbling down as dev throws in the trowel


Re: Financial models matter

The article is about the demise of a FreeBSD-based OSS project and your first thought is to bring up Microsoft...?

Since you mentioned it, if Microsoft's software is so awful, what does that say of the alternatives that people (and businesses) refuse to use even for free...? And it's *not* that Microsoft are entrenched: times were when there was nary a Microsoft server serving pages on the 'net. Now look at things...

I know Microsoft bashing is popular, with some factions of the IT society. But I just wish people would grow up beyond that phase, already!
