We don't need open source, just as we don't need an updated Kickstart where the main change is copyright strings and a picture.
But there seems to be a lot of people who feel a very strong need to pay for updated copyright strings and a picture. The kind of people who will ensure that we will never have a Kickstart you can just use for getting UAE up and running or that software authors feel that they can't ship their software on an autobooting floppy or CD.
Every time you pay for a pointless old Kickstart, you're dooming the Amiga to greater obscurity.
* None of this should be interpreted as criticism of Olsen, who is always doing a great job. It's just that this kind of thing doesn't solve any problems, it just creates more of them.
