Is it time for Open Source to grow up?

,----[ Quote ]
| In the past ten years Open Source software and its poster child, Linux, has
| expanded quite remarkably. It has changed from a rebel without a cause to an
| entity that even the tried and true establishments have sat up and taken
| notice. Heck, if it is good enough for such mission critical, world changing
| Wall Street then it is good enough for anything.
