USASpending.gov Refresh Uses Open Source, Cloud 

,----[ Quote ]
| The refreshed site, like other federal Web 
| sites, takes advantage of open source 
| components. It was developed on the open-
| source platform Drupal, which also powers 
| the WhiteHouse.gov site that was 
| relaunched late last year.

| The site is developed by Sony Music, and 
| is one of the better looking Drupal sites 
| that I have seen Sony Music launch.


Harley From PTFS-LibLime: What It Isâand Isnât

,----[ Quote ]
| While the LibLime Koha Community offering 
| is available both as a SaaS or hosted 
| service and for local installation, 
| Enterprise Koha is limited to SaaS because 
| the General Public License, which all 
| those participating in Koha development 
| must accept, requires that any 
| enhancements made to open source software 
| must be "distributed" by free download to 
| any interested party.



Joomla vs Drupal: business models and commercial ecosystem

,----[ Quote ]
| Why is this happening? First, the Joomla
| people that I talked to believed that there
| was more money to be made in the Drupal world,
| as Drupal tends to attract larger projects.
| Further, the lack of Drupal template clubs is
| perceived as an opportunity for Joomla
| developers already familiar with that business
| model. Third, since the long awaited Joomla
| 1.6 release is "only" an incremental release,
| some people are only marginally excited about
| it. Contrasted with Drupal 7 and Wordpress
| 3.0, both of which are shaping up to be
| phenomenal, paradigm-shifting releases with
| tons of improvements and feature additions,
| many Joomla developers are expanding their
| horizons and portfolios.


White House delivers Drupal a stimulus

,----[ Quote ]
| Drupal and its commercial arm, Acquia, got
| a big boost last year when it was announced
| the White House would be using the
| software.


The White House: open-source Drupal developer?

,----[ Quote ]
| Call it a sign of the times: not only is
| the Obama White House using plenty of open-
| source software, its technology team is
| contributing back to the community.
