I don't care.  I have no horse in this race.  

I do, however, strongly dislike these "projects" projecting an image of
being something they are not, and not conspicuously and prominently
displaying the limitations of what you can and cannot expect from them,
then "trading on" the heightened (and unrealistic) expectations they
have engendered for themselves.

Its not about money in the case of open source; it has to be about 
personal ego gratification, since there's no money changing hands and
that's about all that's left.

The same thing goes on in commercial software development - but there
the demon is easily identified, since cash is changing hands in return
for those promises.

I get pretty snippy about this stuff wherever I find it.
