Why does he say that like socialism and communism are somehow in competition? Does he know communism is the end goal of socialism?

...whose end goal is still communism.

In any case, I think a more valid analogy would be this one: opensource is like right-winger libertarianism, while free-software is more like left-winger libertarianism.

It's talking about (democratic) socialism not using force to implememt socialism which is true. They believe in voting to achieve socialism and change through democracy.

Vs. I guess ML 'communism' (socialism) which is a violent overthrow of the system.

Marxism is a violent overthrow of the system, communism is just the intended result. In fact, that violent overthrow is marxist socialism--dictatorship of the proletariat.
