Once upon a time

Once upon a time working for open source project or believing in open source was more about "having fun". It wasnt very long time ago though. Times have changed and changed very fast. JBoss's childish brag about their win over BEA sounds more like a bloodsport much of the commercial software world is characterized as.

Can these guys just focus on executing and building a better software rather than working extra hard and beating the drum of P in their professional open source.

In a not so distant future, you not only need to worry about the software lock-in from proprietary softwares but also be prepared for lock-in from the most "professional" open source software as well.

Why having fun is so hard ?
