in killing off "Free Software". Alan McKenzie and Pamela Jones are

"The path forward is open source, not free software. Sometimes that
openness will mean embracing Microsoft in order to meet a customer's

and useless as it is in government.

Free software has lost. Open source has won. We're all the better for it."
