Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"And the economics changed. Linux and the *BSD family are
all free, including source code. This change in price point also
makes it really difficult to continue to justify the "not invented
here" philosophy. After all, if it's free and you can look at
all the code--who cares who originally wrote it? Ideas of ownership
in the traditional capitalist sense become passe."
"If we look at the players who have jumped on the Open Source
bandwagon (as opposed to those who built the Open Source bandwagon)
we see, among others, Apple, Corel and IBM. Why them?"
"The new MacOS has BSD UNIX under the hood. Why? Their hardware
continues to change and the UNIX code-base is very stable and easy
to port. Good choice."
