OK, let's do that. 4Front is a company which produces both proprietary
(OSS) and libre software (xmms). It has a couple of staff and a
modest turnover. ALSA developers are employed by Novell, which now
also produces both kinds of software. Apart from being the granddaddy
of proprietary networks, Novell is a multi-million dollar
multi-national company which probably has thousands of staff.

The idea that OSS is 'corporate' but ALSA is not just makes me laugh.
Even when it was sponsored by SUSE, the ALSA project had far bigger
corporate backing than 4Front. SUSE was invested in substantially by
IBM and other companies over many years.

Cheers

Daniel
