The 14 Key Events that led to a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) Revolution

,----[ Quote ]
| The last quartile of the 20th century was marked 
| by a rise in software development by companies, 
| individuals and hobbyist groups.    Key among 
| software development methodologies was a 
| controversial yet innovative idea about giving 
| away your software code for others to use and 
| improve upon it.  
| Those new to the free and open source community 
| may not appreciate how radical and dangerous the 
| idea of giving away your source code for free 
| was for people.  Those that did subscribe to the 
| ideology sacrificed tremendous profits and fame 
| yet helped create what we now call FOSS today.

Choosing Open Source Solutions

| Finding the right open source product is just as 
| important as the decision to use an open source 
| product to begin with. In every business 
| software environment there are a few common 
| components. There is the commercial product 
| we've all used for years. There are the two or 
| three popular open source alternatives, and 
| there is a list of migration headaches we all 
| experience that eventually becomes the list of 
| reasons why we should stick with what worked 
| before. Occasionally there is a product that 
| inspires us to stay in the fight. A classic 
| example we can all relate to is a product most 
| of us use all day, every day: the email client.
