I’m been tasked with writing a presentation on the “Dynamics of Open Source.” I’ll be co-delivering the talk at the MPower Open User Conference next week. Why I’m doing this talk is another story for another post.
Anyhow, there is so much to say on this subject. I was hoping to solicit some feedback from some of my readers. The most common stuff people say about open source, “lower total cost of ownership”, “it has less bugs”, “improves faster, new features added faster”, etc, etc.
What do you like about open source software/tools? What don’t you like? How has it helped/hurt your organization?
