[News] GNU/Linux and Free Software Build Startup

Hash: SHA1

Start-up built on free software

| Open source programs, which started to gain currency around the dot-com boom 
| in the late 1990s, initially had difficulty attracting mainstream users 
| because volunteer-maintained software was thought to be less reliable and 
| less secure than products from blue chip technology providers like IBM and 
| Microsoft. But over the past 10 years, as such open source programs as 
| Apache, Linux, and MySql have been integrated into mainstream corporate 
| technology settings, acceptance has steadily increased.      


Some company called "Google" would not have emerged without GNU and Linux.

FOSS sparks innovation.

| caching system and MySQL database.


The dawn of a new Cloudera

| Given the current economic outlook it’s great to see a new open source
| start-up rearing its head, and the list of founders indicates that this one
| has a good chance of survival. While VentureBeat is focused on the fact that
| Ex-Google, Yahoo, and Facebook employees are on the team, my eye was caught
| by the fact that Mike Oslon, Sleepycat Software founder and former CEO has
| been tempted out of semi-retirement.
