Open source now tier 1 for software development

Both Furrier and his co-host Stu Miniman agree that open source is now a tier 1 frontrunner platform for software development and that is something that has drawn attention from some big names that were not previously associated with open source. With Intel, IBM, Cisco and others participating in the community, it was Paul Cormier who came on theCUBE to issue a warning to developers and customers alike to beware of quasi-open source offerings. His biggest fear was the susceptibility of Linux and the open source community to being forced into repeating the mistakes of the UNIX model.
