Hard Times: Open Source's New Big Test

,----[ Quote ]
| Grim financial times are not "ahead"; they're here, now. Belt-tightening and
| budget-butchering across the board are the order of the day. Now's the time
| for commercial vendors of open source to show what they're made of: if they
| can weather this, they can weather anything.

Open source is about belief in code

,----[ Quote ]
| After every collapse, under the open source principle, we start from a higher
| level. What looks in the proprietary world like rubble is, in an open source
| world, gold ore.
|
| This may sound like pollyanna to you now, but it’s important and, best of
| all, real. If your faith in Wall Street has been shaken, remember that in
| open source you’re not starting at ground zero but on a higher level of code.
|
| Open source was made for times like this. You don’t have to believe in it.
| Just use it.
