You've got a point, but I think I've got a better point.   Competition is good
amonst capitalist situations but in most cases,  opensource (GPL) projects are
just forks of others and lead nowhere. It's time to end this redundant circle.
I think current situations and past is enough proof that the opensource community
needs to unite a bit more. Anyway, you may not agree but I'm sure most do. Take
government for instance. It could be considered like opensource. The government
puts its resources into something but never gives it competition. Why? Cause it's
competition against itself and is redundant. We are the same way. If anything, we
need to get together, compromise, then implement. That's my six cents.
