Comment This is good (Score 1) 208

the bean counters will never understand how software is developed and I am not talking about inhibiting profitability but how to increase profitability. Instead they compare software development with factories and wants square blocks of 'workload' outlining a project and when that is not working they just add more blocks or extend overtime reducing profitability even more. They hate hearing that software development is an art or like a green house where some pots needs more water than other and some needs fertilizers and other just need a dark corner for a long time to develop loads of flowers. It makes me sad. I say we sack the bean counters!

But unfortunately open source is not written by professionals, but ideologically driven amateurs and other random hobbyists.

That's not a fair generalization. Though there are plenty of "ideologically driven amateurs" — especially in the Linux (compared to BSD) world — they are mostly found among the noisy advocates, rather than actual developers.

Especially since a Dr Stephen Henson and the IETF member and security professional Robin Seggelmann submitted the bug, their CV:s are as professional as it gets. So please get real...
