Open Source Blues

I'm not actively involved with open source but I like to follow what's going on. One thing I've noticed recently is that open source is suffering some growing pains. Before anyone flames me I don't mean that open source as an idea is suffering, only that as it grows in popularity the larger open source organizations are alienating some of the same folks they once courted. Take these two posts for example. These thoughts sound a lot like those of the old Iris crew after we were absorbed by IBM. I doubt that things have reached the Dilbertesque levels one sees in a large corporations but it's still an interesting milestone in the evolution of the industry.
