I think you are making the mistake of what goes on here in COLA as representative of the whole OSS Community. It's not.
What do you mean? OSS developers do take charge. They are out there coding their hearts out and making the excellent products that we all use and love. Every six months brings new and useful features with OSS, as compared to the comparitively ancient upgrade cycle of commercial software. How many versions of Mandriva have been released since XP was pushed on the market?
OSS developers are driven go-getters. Fixes are put out quickly and efficiently, before exploits are even available for vulnerabilities. New features are added per end user requests and input. Bugs and problems are fixed. Stuff gets done!
It's already happening. You are too oriented on one aspect, you need to look at the whole to get an idea of just how mbuttive this is. Here's a hint, don't concentrate on the US to provide any big examples of forward thinking in IT.
