Re: One thing people tend to forget about FOSS.

FOSS as a thing will live on. Companies as a thing will live on.

Specific FOSS or comapnies will die. You only have to spend 5 minutes.looking around github at the number of abandoned repos, often for once working software that are now stale and won't even build with supported (eg no glaring security holes) versions of compilers/interpreters/operating systems.

That doesn't even touch the surface of stuff that was never completed or got removed for whatever reason (Truecrypt for example)
