I read your article and I found it very interesting. I write a paper on general information on open source business models. I cannot decode or describe or understand Figure 1. which is "Open Source Business Models Along the property-Efficiency Continum. What I got is as follows: Efficiency-based projects possibly tend to have more contributions, but make less money. The cause of this attraction is the absence or limited property-based restrictions in a project. In efficiency-based projects, contributors are, to some extent, sure of there right preservation for the work they do in the project. Therefore, a business on the efficiency-based project does not have a free hand to take the right of its contributors that developed a tool for the project, and sell copies of the software. A trade-off between property and efficiency can be an example of a platform provider that allow programming to the software provided. If you please clarify it more to me, would be the most appreciated. Best Regards, Bedar hello Carlo Daffara,

Comment on App stores have no place in a web-apps world by Rich http://carlodaffara.conecta.it/app-stores-have-no-place-in-a-web-apps-world/comment-page-1/#comment-46325 Rich Thu, 22 Sep 2011 15:03:57 +0000 http://carlodaffara.conecta.it/?p=592#comment-46325 I agree with I still think that App stores is really useful and beneficial to everyone.

It would be good to be able to use an entirely free distro such as trisquel in all hardware and find it works. The Libre software cause has a pretty rough ride, not least suffering from a lack of high profile media coverage and its attendant high profile criticism. Maybe Stallman has found a way to put that right? More power to his elbow. The Linux kernel as frequently distributed and used is not entirely free, this is no surprise to developers, surely?
