Despite successes, FLOSS still misunderstood, villianized

Filed under
OSS

Despite increasing evidence that corporations are turning to open source more than ever, there's also countering evidence that people have a long ways to go before they "get" open source.

The notion that innovation is driving open source adoption now is a theme that's been woven heavily in my conversations with open source community members these past couple of weeks. More and more I am getting notes about organizations that have never used open source as a methodology before, now starting to deploy it in their in-house development departments or joining in existing FLOSS projects.

But juxtaposing these positive experiences are the reports of the outright ignorance other companies and individuals are showing when they fumble their way around open source.
