This story had the following curious observation:
Among some people, the efficacy of open-source projects has amplified long-standing complaints that the JCP is not nimble enough to outpace Microsoft’s development efforts and bring enhancements to the market quickly.
If I understand that aright, it means that Microsoft’s development efforts are more nimble than the JCP’s. And the solution, therefore, to become even more nimble, to become more like Microsoft, is to become an open source project.
I must agree with the sentiment, but the logic escapes me.
