End of Linux philosophical debates?

Iain Ferguson writes at ZDNet:

Ideologues have to fade into the background and keep their philosophical debates within the the community.

The author clearly states that he wants the Linux and FLOSS community to finish all idealogical debates and just do business. The thing is that it's hard to find the borders of the community and, more important, no way to control it. It's not a company where the management can agree on the way to go. No. It's community, with hundreds of people with their own ideas.

There are people who use Linux and FLOSS to make money. Nothing wrong with that. There are also people who deal with it for different reasons and like the debates, in fact. I don't want them to go and I don't think I'll see that in the near future. That's good.
