I just don't understand why a lot of companies and papers think that distros are pitted against each other. The single most aggravating statement I ever hear is when a company's #1 goal is "Increase shareholder value". Wow. I hate those three words.

We speak a completely different language, we speak a language of
'coopetition.'  I think Paul's imagery of a community of farmers
helping each other out at a barn raising, has a lot of appeal.  There
are probably some other farming analogies that we could use in talking
points. Things like long term sustainability versus short term yields,

It's the difference between Software Industry and Software Society.

Read Michael Tiemann's brilliant paper:

Our goal at Red Hat, and the goal that participants in the Fedora Project share with us, is to put our money where our mouth is, and lead with Radical Collaboration and Radical Transparency.


That article makes for awesome reading. Thank you. I had to do some googling and read more from that quote about the Gates Foundation. It is something to be said about 'coopetition' where actual lives are involved. The value of sharing is then amplified.
