open-source, como podemos ver na web quase que inteira, e agora ate
quem sabe como SL propriamente.

Sobre o assunto, notícia relacionada publicada há alguns dias. Tradução livre de um trecho interessante: "Uma considerável fatia do mercado tornou claro com suas carteiras que eles querem implantar e rodar software open source. ( . . . ) O modelo de negócios ao redor do software open source é faturar no ponto de valor, quando os usuários estão prontos para passar à produção; isto é mais fácil de entender e mais satisfatório para os usuários do que emitir grandes cheques para licenças de software"

PHP Event: Open Source Accommodation Emphasized

Panelists representing companies such as Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, IBM, and Oracle were queried at the Zend/PHP Conference & Expo on Tuesday about commercial involvement in the open source arena. "It seems to us from where we sit that there's really no choice," said Tim Bray, a Web -oriented generalist at Sun and a co-inventor of XML. "A substantial portion of the market has made it clear with their wallets that they want to deploy and run open source software." "We can't go back. It's too late," Bray said. The business model around open source is monetizing at the point of value, when users are ready to go into production; this is easier to understand and more satisfying to users than writing big checks for software licenses, Bray said. Generation of revenues in the open source market largely has involved selling customer support services while offering the software itself for free. An IBM official added that innovation, which had occurred at the university and vendor levels, now is happening in the open community at large. Panelists also touched on the actual subject listed for the session: software stacks. This sparked some sharp disagreements over how easy it is to switch software platforms. The LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL Perl/PHP/Python) stack, said panelist Marten Mickos, CEO of MySQL, provides a heterogeneous platform that evolves on its own. Bray added that the LAMP stack is pretty swappable. Touching on the topic of programming languages, Bray stressed that no language will dominate anymore, not Java, PHP or Rails.
