Aggressive, fanatical advocation of freeness does little for
businesses, who don't live in our charmed world.

I don't want this to turn into a freeness flame war, as one gets
enough of that in the open unix community.  However, one should keep
in mind that outside the hacker community (See definition of hacker in, it's a rough world.

I've had to sign NDAs in order to work. If one were to say "No way,
this should be developed openly," said business will laugh in one's
face, and shut the door.

NDAs don't have to be evil. Proprietary software/designs are evil.
Having said all this, I don't think that being anti-NDA is "stupid",
and I don't think the person in question was really implying that
all anti-NDA people are stupid.

Take another look at the world, before you judge it. (and let's
try and end this thread)
