Well, not really. Consider:
Let's imagine now that Debian directors decide to save money by
firing all the great programmers they employ, dedicated to write
their operating systems. Let´s imagine they decide that a group of
volunteers, worldwide, with a horizontal organization without chiefs,
is the latest model in modern business management. What would
happen? How much longer would Debian survive? Days? Hours?
