All About Open Source!

In the wake of the recent debt crisis and with the economy continuing to sputter, many businesses and organizations are being forced to find creative solutions to their complex IT problems. While to an open source advocate this seems to be good news, in reality, many of the advantages of utilizing open source technologies are still being drastically overlooked. Throughout the years many of the big players in software (I wont mention any names here!) have made it their mission to undermine the open source community as a whole. Many of their arguments completely lack merit and are meant to confuse as opposed to inform. In reality, Open source, with the absence of license fees and with packaging determined by the community and not a single vendor, makes it possible for companies with varying requirements to have a solution that fits their needs. Organizations can now deploy what they want and only what they want, and pay for what they need and only what they need.
