[News] Drupal Makes Business

Hash: SHA1

Acquia on Why Web Publishers Love DrupalâAnd How the Startup Balances Business
With Belonging to an Open-Source Community

,----[ Quote ]
| You might think that Acquia is to Drupal as Red Hat is to Linux, but that 
| analogy doesnât quite work. For one thing, Red Hat charges for its version of 
| Linux, while all versions of Drupal, including Acquiaâs, are free. Imagine 
| that Linus Torvalds wasnât merely the gatekeeper for the Linux kernel but 
| also chief technology officer at a company aiming to be the central source 
| for Linux support; thatâs the somewhat precarious position Dries Buytaert, 
| and therefore Acquia, occupies. So the company has to be extra careful not to 
| make changes that might alienate the thousands of volunteer Drupal 
| developers. âIn every major action, we talk about how do we make sure the 
| community stays together,â says Erickson. âBut Dries and Drupal are so tied 
| at the heart, itâs in Driesâs DNA for that to happen.â

| this environment.â There are now more than 400,000 Drupal sites around the 
| world, and drupal.org has a million unique visitors per month.
