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.

In theory, there is no difference between practice and theory. In practice there is. In theory YES! But in practice I’ve seen some of the nastiest behavior in people due to the lack of legals, ethics and repercussions. This was partly why I passed CentOS leadership to others.

revised: open source is about collaborating first and competing second. Through collaboration, competitive advantage is gained -- which is, the very essence of "competing".

I would love to see this just become the standard mindset for all interaction between individuals in the tech industry.

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