Agile methods and Free, Libre and Open Source Software communities have different approaches to produce high quality and successful software in different scenarios. This work presents two surveys, each one directed to one of the communities, aimed to identify communication issues encountered in each environment. The results provided point out to very different communities with common practices and behaviors but with very similar problems and view points to solve the issues encountered.
