Open platform vs Walled garden

Walled garden

is a software system where the carrier or service provider has control over applications, content and media, and restricts convenient access to non-approved applications or content. This is in contrast to an open platform, where consumers have unrestricted access to applications, content, and much more.

One of the challenges presented by the knowledge society when where we live is where to focus our attention.

Which is the best solution: choosing a unique jailer who graciously dictate the rules and regulations instead of small islands of knowledge where novel ways to solve problems are constantly proposed and in occasions discarded at the same rate, and the process of discovery plus learning these new technologies is a constant challenge?

A continent of knowledge with clearly established rules or distant islands full of brilliant knowledge and free will?
