Whatever Happened to Open Source?

Open Source used to be a thing. A huge thing. Wikipedia. WordPress. Linux. Firefox. etc. I’m not suggesting that it’s run its course, but it just doesn’t seem to have the momentum it once did. Tell a developer that you want to use WordPress to build your website, and he just might roll his eyes. Ask a designer what browser to use and she’ll probably suggest Chrome. Where’s the love?

Am I mis-perceiving this? Is it just so common now that we don’t need to talk about it as much? What happened?

You should share this!
