how can you compare Linux with TESTARE ??
Open source software is open source software. That's it.
It is up to the people then to screen the high quality OSS from the thrash. Thats the real world.
And maybe you do not need another test framework but others do...and maybe just looking at the source code some people will get inspired and fork another project...who knows...
Thats open source..share with others!
Open source means freedom of expression and sharing ideas not only code...
So you want to have only one car brand in the market and build accessories on top of that ? Wow what a visioner you are!! But nobody forces you not to do that BUT please do not tell us what we should do!!
And please lets keep Apache outside this discussion.
Thats a clear example what OSS is going today because of people like you, blind followers...
There are better AS out there that they are barely mentioned (but used in production) while Geronimo sounded like the coolest thing happened in the last years...and got press and exposure like it were such thing...
Accordingly to you we did not need Geronimo, right ?
..even I think it is a piece of crap I am not against it. You are free to look at it or ignore it. ..but I am glad to have that choice!!
