"The Apache Software Foundation has arguably been the leading force for open-source software over the last 10 years and promises to continue being a force in the new decade.

"During a visit to the organization's corporate headquarters in Forest Hill, Md., Jim Jagielski, chairman of the ASF board of directors, told eWEEK that ASF has indeed had a "huge impact" on the industry.

"Over the last decade, Apache has been "more pervasive in Web infrastructure and open-source software infrastructure than any other organization out there," Jagielski said. "If you are using Java, you're doing Log4J or Tomcat. We've made inroads for other organizations and for open-source software to gain entry in the enterprise. Enterprise organizations will try the [Apache] Web server first, and they tend to get a different view of open-source software. And that encourages them to look at other open-source software projects out there. The Apache Software Foundation is pretty much their first test of open-source software, and that's a pretty awesome responsibility."
