Debunking popular open source myths
,----[ Quote ]
| The open source industry will soon reach another milestone when Linux
| celebrates its 20th anniversary on Aug. 25. Advocates identify five
| misconceptions surrounding the technology and discuss how these have since
| been proven false with the emergence of a viable business model.
| Traditionally, open source software (OSS) such as Linux was created and
| refined by a community of software enthusiasts working on it as a hobby or
| fueled by their personal passion. Linux founder Linus Torvalds, for example,
| was a computer science student at the University of Helsinki when he created
| the operating system (OS).
| This has resulted in several commonly-held perceptions regarding OSS such as
| the lack of capabilities and support for deployment in the enterprise space,
| and an insufficient security foundation.
