Quote of the Day, Oct 27, 2008

“Nobody believed a bunch of part-time volunteers could create something as complex as an operating system, or that it would be more stable than Windows. Nobody believed Fortune 500 companies would trust software that couldn’t be “owned.” Yet 17 years later, the open source software movement has been crucial to the Cambrian explosion of the Web economy.”

— Clive Thompson
