Heard it from a friend, who heard it from a friend…

Found a blog entry that was linked to through
firefox.blogcarnival.com stating, “This blogger says the WordPress folks may not have the best of open source intentions.”
The original blog author posits that it’s not necessarily good that WordPress authors are making money based off of WordPress’s popularity.

I say: wtf? WordPress is open-source and continues to be so. And as long as it is, who cares if the WordPress team makes some cash from it? That’s one of the great things of open source: it is still possible to make money off of your completely open, free code! Anyone that would bitch about someone making money off of open source is simply unclear on the concept.
