[News] Free Software Poised to Change Status Quo; Another Award for Red Hat

Hash: SHA1

Is Open Source Threatening the Status Quo?

,----[ Quote ]
| A new software upstart Marketcetera contends that its open source platform 
| for building automated trading systems is an alternative to the likes of EMS 
| providers Portware and Flextrade. Marketcetera's CEO Graham Miller (who 
| previously worked at hedge funds where he developed automated trading 
| systems) regards these platforms as proprietary and calls them restrictive 
| and inflexible as well as expensive.     
| [...]
| As Linux evolved, it threatened the likes of Microsoft Windows and Sun’s Unix 
| (Solaris). Well now every major Wall Street brokerage firm and exchange is 
| running Linux — though they may have bought a software license from Red Hat. 
| [Most recently, NYSE Euronext migrated its electronic trading to Linux under 
| a deal with open source vendor Red Hat.]
