2009 Open Source Monitoring Conference

,----[ Quote ]
| As you can imagine, Iâm not excited to see 
| more open core software. Groundwork has raised 
| nearly US$30 million and continues to fail 
| with its open core fork of Nagios, and while I 
| consider Ethan much more capable I think it is 
| a bad move. The popularity of Nagios was 
| driven by its community, and it seems obvious 
| that this community is not happy. Driving 
| another wedge between them by splitting 
| development into open and closed versions will 
| not help.


Queplix didnât go Open, but for a Reason

| Strategic decisions about what to keep secret 
| and what to make open should come out of a 
| deep analysis of which are your value 
| propositions and core competencies, and 
| changing direction is always an option. I 
| would consider the opportunity to not remove 
| old open source links though, maybe updating 
| those pages and explaining the change of 
| strategy.



Survey: "Open Core" least popular open source option

,----[ Quote ]
| A survey of 118 enterprise IT and development executives conducted by open
| source solution provider OpenLogic concludes that the "Open Core" model for open
| source licensing trails behind dual licensing and open source with commercial
| support, in terms of acceptability to the enterprise.
| [...]
| These findings suggest that what enterprises are looking for ideally is a
| project backed by a community and multiple vendors, such as the Linux kernel.
