There are definitely some interesting points in there. And we can see  
the same dynamics at work already in Drupal to some extent.

Funny, in a way, that the article relates to the Gnome project.. Trae  
and I had a bit of a discussion of Drupal and Gnomeish ways such as  
putting a lot of thought into picking "sane defaults" that will work  
well for many people. That way of thinking could be one of the things  
that moves Drupal up Dries' Y-axis of "easy to use" (from his roadmap  
presentation in Vancouver).

Good thing it's so easy to make modules for Drupal to build new  
functionality without any fork-mongering :)
