Is a project always OPEN SOURCE .....

...if the base code is open source?

This idea that a corporate project could be open source is foolish and to blame the programmers for a bad project, open source or not , is just plain passing the buck.

Sure you can have a corporate application that uses open source but unless you have hired the Actual Whole Team that develops and maintains ALL THE CODE – you are not going too get anything close to the application you want. That’s the project managers fault and the GUI designers fault NOT THE BASE CODERS fault.

How many Open Source Projects have a GUI expert – is the end user even thought of a little, what they need or there access and abilities?

At least my Viral Media Project works for all users on all flash platforms.

Can you say front to back design. I think you can.
