Re: Doug Cutting, an open source leader
I spoke a bit with Cutting about the similarities between Linux and Hadoop. He mentioned that he wanted an open source/ consensus model for Hadoop governance. This differs from Linux governance, which he described as a "benevolent dictatorship". This was not a put-down, but simply a matter of differences. Hadoop and Linux both started out as kernels. Limux is universal and Hadoop is getting there.
