Acquia, Supporting the Drupal CMS, Adds 200 New Customers

,----[ Quote ]
| We've reported a number of times before on Acquia, which offers a 
| commercially supported version of the open source Drupal content management 
| system. OStatic runs on Drupal, and Drupal version 6 is expected to soon run 
| over 240,000 web sites,  with many large media companies switching to it.   


Commercial open source is essential to enterprise IT

| In the ideal world, open source software would be free of charges and its 
| communities would operate on a Service Level Agreement (SLA) scale. 
| There would be virtually no expenses to acquire, use and maintain the 
| software in enterprise IT production environments.
