I despise articles like this.

Can you get hardware and software for free? Yes. You need to do a lot of hustling though to get the components, assemble the network and keep it running. Additional, electricity and internet access are never free. Someone has to maintain the network, install software and answer user questions.

Agile is not a product. It is a mindset. Each team needs to workout what that means for them.

I am positive Agile is not a silver bullet for every project. Software engineering is still a hard problem to generalize.
