- How “throwing one away” makes open source better
Glyn Moody on the Open Enterprise blog at ComputerWorld UK explains the revealing motivations behind the fork of CouchDB by its original creator. He puts into a very clear context of evolutionary software development occasionally needing a punctuated equilibrium, where some vestigial version if completely discarded in order to leap frog progress in the right direction. I am certain there are other examples from the FLOSS world where the opportunity for this sort of forking and subsequent community adoption is very possible.
