SV.com debate on Open vs. Shared Source ends

Round Table

The interesting debate at SiliconValley.com, involving Craig Mundie, Bruce Perens, etc. has ended. Mundie does not really answer questions thrown at him but just paraphrases the Microsoft party line.

It is interesting to go through the messages and to see that Mundie does not really address some questions thrown at him, such as how does the so-called "viral" licenses endanger Microsoft's IP rights over its own code. Instead he just paraphrases the Microsoft party line in his conclusion. Bruce's last message sums it up:

Craig Mundie, One of our readers commented to me that you are not debating me - you don't respond directly to my posts at all. Please be aware that this is a debate, that both of us are members of the panel, and that you should at least make the attempt to refute my points.


Bruce Perens

Will Mundie's appearance in the O'Reilly Conference at San Diego be much of the same?

Why he's not debating (5.00 / 1) (#5)

Just because Mundie isn't debating well doesn't mean that he has nothing to say - I have a feeling that Microsoft is keeping him bottled up a bit. At the same time, Bruce is doing a SMASHING job

Could it be that his evasiveness and regurgitation of boilerplate is all exactly what it seems?

Craig Mundie and "The Soul of a New Machine&q (4.25 / 4) (#6)

Random Mundie factoid: He was one of the leaders of the team in North Carolina that was battling the team chronicled in Massachusetts in "The Soul of a New Machine." That is, Mundie was on the team that lost.

Does anyone have a mirror of this debate? The server is broken (i'm getting script errors of some sort).
