Who leads the Open Source?

4 Mar

Who is the leader of the open source movement? Now that does become a very tricky question, when you come to think of names like Stallman and Linus and others!

According to Dana Blankenhorn,

… As with open source itself, leadership in the open source movement is distributed and diffuse. Open source has many leaders. Richard Stallman is a leader. Sam Palmisano of IBM is a leader. Linus and Alan are both leaders. There are others. Not to put too fine a point on it, but a bus could run over any of these great leaders tomorrow and the open source tide would keep rising.
