Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day in the United States and I want to use the occasion to say "Thank you!" to open source developers.
I use open source every day of the week: my Apache web server runs on Solaris and uses both Perl and PHP along with Postgres and MySQL - all open source, all products that work.
And, of course, there are thousands of open source projects whose products I don't use, mostly don't know anything significant about, but count on being able to find when I need them.
So, bottom line? to all involved anywhere in making open source what it is today, whether you make a product I'll never even hear of or something I use every day, I want to say one thing; one deeply felt, sincere, thing: Thank you.
