It's good to read this. There were strongly held opinions (as was heard
loud and clear when some of the local FOSS people went for the local
MIND meetings) that FOSS has no future and will die (due to the alleged
lack of ownership in FOSS) - statistics such as this one that show
growth clearly dispute their opinions and give encouragement for those
who are new to FOSS.

Now somebody just needs to post this to the MIND forums ... :-)
