Journal Okian Warrior's Journal: Non-popularity of Open Source

Apropos my recent post outlining why open source is not very popular.

I've spent some time researching useability, both in computer software and other areas.

The post was necessarily brief - it only outlined 5 general trends and was light on context, explanation, and supporting examples.

A better treatment would explain all the trends that I see (perhaps a dozen) with more explicit explanations for each. Unfortunately that's not appropriate for a blog post [Slashdot] comment.
