Why What FOSS Needs is a Unified Message
“Does the FOSS movement suffer from not having a strong person who functions as its leader? Noting the impact that figureheads such as Steve Jobs and Bill Gates have had, that’s the question that TechNewsWorld tackles in a post based on a poll on TuxRadar. Of course, the FOSS movement has had notable leaders over the years, ranging from Linus Torvalds to Richard Stallman, but there is no single charismatic leader who regularly keeps open source and open standards topics alive in public conversations. While one person with enough charisma might make a big difference, though, what FOSS really needs is more unified messaging, and on the commercial open source front, more unified marketing.”
