So in response I wrote a BIG comment and when I realised I was going overboard I stopped but i can't restrain posting the same comment here [:D]
FOSS is a glorious concept. I had seen people on net for whom FOSS is not only a term , It's a way of life for them those so called geeks. The major problem in India is that the majority of us are easy-going fellas for whom comfort had always mattered more than ethics and we are the witness of the so called behavioural pattern of our society quiet often...isn't it?Conclusion :
The line which differentiate open-source from close-source is not ease of use, comfort ,better products...blah..blah..blahh but it's the 'power to change' , You can play with the source and understand the indepth-working, you can toy with the software customize it according to your will and it gives gratification which is second to none - The true joy of engineering !!
Ahhh..i see my ranting is making this comment more of an essay..so i should keep my pen down here but it's really good that atleast some of the Elite class [:P] people are getting into the skin of FOSS.
