Open Source Software for Materials and Process Modeling

,----[ Quote ]
| Though on only a tiny minority of desktop computers, open source dominates
| several fields of use. For example, Linux runs major data centers such as
| those of Google, Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, the New York Stock Exchange, and many
| of the world's largest banks. In addition, 85% of the top 500 supercomputers
| in the world run Linux,1 and Linux is used exclusively by all of the
| animation studios producing major motion pictures, on both render farms and
| animator desktops.2 The Apache web server powers over half of websites,3 and
| the market share of the open source Firefox web browser in Europe is nearly
| 30%, and is approaching 50% in several countries.4

Latha Jishnu: The appeal of Jefferson's open source model

,----[ Quote ]
| Innovation in science was being hedged in by the patents thicket and we
| needed to adopt the Linux model of open source development. BIOS and
| Bioforge, the online research toolkit offered by Cambia, would work on the
| same ideals as the open source software movement: everything is offered free
| but anyone using the technology has to help in improving the core toolkit.

Who copied who? [Apple or Linux]

| We think Avant (at top) was probably inspired by Leopard (in the middle), but
| Apple’s engineers would have likely looked at other desktops themselves.
| Including Sun’s Project Looking Glass, an experimental interface which has
| been around for years.
