Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The most common thought on money and open source is "hey, it's
free and works."
"The reality is of course more complicated and I argue that open
source is very expensive for the organizations running a project
and sometimes they might not even consider all the costs when
considering a new open source project. For this discussion, I am
not referring to open source projects run by individuals, but
large-scale solutions run by public companies or foundations."
