[News] No Support Traps in Free Software

Hash: SHA1

Do you really need paid support for Open Source products?

,----[ Quote ]
| My personal experience ,after seven years of involvement with LAMP (Linux, 
| Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python/Perl) type production server environments, is that 
| the free community distributions of many well-respected Open Source products 
| are so good that they rarely, if ever, required paid support.   


Open source tools becoming commercial products? This can be a good thing.

,----[ Quote ]
| Open source tools in some capacity find their way into the enterprise IT 
| environment. While some open source efforts will stall over time, others will 
| continue to thrive and have commercial offerings based on the open source 
| roots. One particular example where a popular open source tool has led to a 
| commercial offering is the ntop tool.     


Acquia: Counting Down to Commercially Supported Drupal

,----[ Quote ]
| The folks from Acquia were in San Francisco for the LinuxWorld conference 
| this week. Acquia, as we've covered before, has been working away on an array 
| of support offerings and services for the powerful open source Drupal content 
| management system (CMS). OStatic is based on Drupal, as are sites such as 
| Fast Company and The Onion. Acquia's goal is to apply a Red Hat-like approach 
| to support and services for Drupal, and it will deliver these offerings later 
| this year. I caught up with Barry Jaspan, security lead and principal 
| engineer at Acquia, to find out what's cooking.       



“Hybrid” Source, MySQL, and the Economics of Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| As is typical, I’m late with the news, but given that we’re still getting 
| inquiries on the subject, it’s worth taking a look at the MySQL Workbench 
| news. Particularly in light of the fact that it’s closely tied to another 
| frequent line of questioning from our clients: hybrid source. In an effort to 
| kill the proverbial two birds, then, let’s indulge in a quick Q&A on the 
| subject.      



An interview with Matt Asay

| Glyn Moody talked to him about why he became a GPL believer and how to create 
| a billion-dollar revenue open source company.
