“It was a good run. So long, old friend.” – Merlin Mann
It seems a tad melodramatic to declare a functioning piece of open source software dead. Especially when the most likely alternative is neither free nor open.
One of the core premises of open source software is not being tied to the whims of a vendor. Quicksilver faithfully serves me everyday. Sure, I’d like Quicksilver to be a more active project – I have direct control over that. Just as you do, just as Merlin does, just as Rob McBroom does (Thanks Rob.). Declaring Quicksilver dead is like declaring Wikipedia worthless because of a typo.
Merlin, by the way, could you check the mp3 URLs for the 43Folders Podcast – specifically, Honor Thy Energy? I was looking to give it a re-listen earlier this week, and came up with a 404. :/
