A few months back I wrote a post titled "Why Open Source Matters: Musings from OSCON 2014". The post covered five reasons why Open Source matters. Those reasons were/are:

  1. Code, Glitches and Open Source Security
  2. Open Source Software
  3. GitHub
  4. The Stringent Control of Proprietary Software
  5. The Endless Ability to Test, Play and Alter

While those reasons still ring true, I want to use this space to center in on another topic speaking to why Open Source and OSS matters more than ever: project management and time constraints.
