Members of the open source hardware community released a public, working definition of what actually constitutes open hardware. The definition, which consists of 11 tenets that a piece of hardware must adhere to in order to qualify as open, is the first document of its kind in the open hardware community.
InfoWorld: "But none of the aforementioned companies nor their free offerings would constitute open source companies, at least as defined by Paul Cormier, Red Hat's president of products and technologies, in a recent interview."
InfoWorld: "Open source doesn't innovate -- so goes the old saw. Proprietary software vendors, including Microsoft, would have you believe the open source movement has produced nothing but knockoffs of existing products and cast-off code that couldn't cut it in the free market."
Network World: "DJ Walker-Morgan over on the Open H has a post up saying that the open source developer community should thank Apple for raising the competitive bar and in using some open source technology in its products. I say rubbish!"
