Open Source is becoming a dominant development model in the software industry. The next generation of software developers, computer scientists, system administrators, analysts, and build engineers need to understand Open Source and must be able to work efficiently within Open Source communities.

I'm not really sure that Open Source is really a software development model as such, just something that comes naturally to software developers working within organisations who's main focus is not IT and who need to collaborate with other people in their field. Education is an excellent example - the main focus of any school should be teaching children things, any software development time needs to be spent creating solutions and features that help that, and less messing around with licensing concerns (added complexity as well as added cost) always helps.

Are they implying / advocating that different toolsets be used in the development of open source software?
