Problems have been laid at the open source world's feet since the definition was first created. Indeed the definition came from a desire to create something more "business friendly" than the historical definition of software freedom. Problems arise when folks stop looking at history and the context in which decisions were made, in essense cease to look at underlying cause-and-effect in the software world.

This talk will take a tour through the open source software space demonstrating why some problems are software problems, some are business and economic problems, and some are community problems, and none of them having anything to do with open source.
