"With some of the entrepreneurial glamour gone from
open-source software, companies backing the cooperative-programming
approach are resorting to more traditional means to boost their
prospects: the old-boys network."
"Open-source programming, in which software code may be shared
and changed, has been popularized by successes such as Linux and
Apache. Now companies backing lesser-known open-source packages are
nailing down alliances to help their prospects."
"For example, Lutris Technologies, a Santa Cruz, Calif., company
that sells a type of server software, soon will see its Enhydra
product bundled with each Hewlett-Packard server that ships with
the Linux operating system. Other open-source companies are
enlisting as advisers the programmers who originated the technology
at the heart of their business models."
