| Another great thing about OSS is that even if the company pulls support for 
| the product (I’m talking to you, Microsoft Response Point) or goes out of 
| business, there is an opportunity for your company (or consultants of your 
| choosing) to continue making repairs and even advancing the tool despite lack 
| of support from a vendor.    


Opensville meets the real world

,----[ Quote ]
| For IT, open source is a way to improve service and reduce costs without the 
| expense. The lower acquisition costs, fast development cycle, continuing 
| enhancements and quick fixes to problems make open source attractive. In 
| fact, a leading industry analyst predicts that within a few years about 80% 
| of all commercial software will include elements of open source technology.

| Companies like Red Hat and Novell offer support subscriptions for enterprise
| customers who don't want to walk the Linux path alone and now other open
| source vendors are getting into the act, too.
