They might be small, but they are well respected all over the world by IT professionals, especially those with more in-depth knowledge of the industry.
And you put yourself into that category? LOL...


" and they believe in a completely open web."

Please get over yourselves. Why must everything always be free. Sounds like Cosatu and the ANC Youth league.
I will never support open source...never.

Open source is everywhere in the web, most servers run Apache. Imagine the web without Firefox, Webkit, or Chromium.

Openness doesn't mean free and doesn't even necessarily mean open source. As Jon said: He'd choose open standards over open source anytime.

The implementations of those standards can cost money (which, in the case of the web, isn't really possible anymore thanks to Microsoft) and be closed source if they want to be (which is the case with Opera, Safari and IE).

You obviously have no clue. You don't even know the difference between free, open-source, and open-standards.

You also shouldn't use the internet, or any PCs, or any modern gadgets or electronic devices. Millions of websites are developed using open source software and open source tools. Mobile devices, computers, embedded devices, and even parts of modern cars make use of open source software in the core. Do you have an ADSL modem or router at home? Do you know it runs Linux underneath? Do you know that you are thus supporting open-source? Heck, even NASA makes use of open source software.

The world would not be what it is today without open source software.

You should lock yourself up in a hole, or accept being labeled as a dim-witted hypocrite.
