Open source is about collaborating; not competing.

Having been in for most of my career this is truly one of the biggest mental transitions I've had to make. The idea of people working together to move a community forward is not built into the legacy modality. But it's way cooler!

Open source is where ideas compete and people collaborate.

While I agree with you in the ideal, because humans are involved it ends up being about both. Tribes form around projects that compete for mindshare. In the best cases, those projects collaborate. But usually they're in competition for users, recognition, contributions, etc.

the model ends up being closer to competing companies. In a sense, the stakes are even higher for the contributors, since they're often contributing with pure passion, energy, free time, and their own reputations.

I like the quote, although I'm not sure I believe whether final competency exists at all.
