    First I want to go on record as saying I disagree with this point.

    >failure is the obvious conclusion.

    And then I'll say that its the ways in which the GPL/OSS/Linux (letting slide that these are three different things) are *not* communistic (retaining private ownership, even if in individual pieces so that the GPL can actually do what its intended) that makes it not communistic, and therefore, not destined to fail.
