How Day Software stumbled upon an open source business strategy

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve written a few times recently about 
| the fact that I think the open source 
| engagement model practiced by companies 
| such as Day Software will become more 
| popular as we see an increasing number of 
| proprietary companies engaging with open 
| source and the pendulum appears to have 
| swung back in favour of community-
| developed open source software.



Open source software can save India $2 bn

,----[ Quote ]
| As Indian consumers and enterprises evaluate the option of
| upgrading to Microsoftâs much-touted operating system (OS)
| Windows 7, to be officially launched on October 22, the free
| and open source software (FOSS) community has fired yet
| another salvo at proprietary software.
| In the year 2010, if FOSS is adopted at 50 per cent levels
| across the economy, India can save around $2 billion (around
| Rs 9,800 crore), suggests a study conducted by the Indian
| Institute of Management-Bangalore. Even a very conservative
| estimate, notes the study, pegs the cost savings for use of
| FOSS on servers as an operating system or as an application
| at Rs 138 crore in 2010.
