The New Open Source… And Why I Don’t Like it.

I know this won’t be popular, and I’ll be brief.

I don’t like the new open source. In fact, I despise it. There’s a new wave of “plan and develop in secret, and treat all negative criticism as evil”, which is not just sweeping through the community, but drowning it.

It has reached a point where it feels as though it’s no longer about “by the community, for the community”, but now, rather “by me, for those people who like me, everyone else be damned, AND… if you don’t give me money, you get no voice in return.”

I hate it. I despise it. And I want no part of it.

But, I know by having something to say about it, I’ll be hated for it. Oh well… so be it.
