If you combine IBM’s acquisition with Microsoft’s buyout of GitHub last year, at the very least you could say that the open source game is changing. These events communicate an increasing interest from the enterprise space in open source technologies as bankable prospects, with big tech companies willing to drop serious cash to boost their name in the field and amongst communities. Also, it is for this reason – amongst others – that it has a decent amount of potential as a driver of the digital economy going forward.
Registration required, not recommended. Just know that open source is becoming VERY profitable and will ultimately destroy Amazon, Facebook, IBM, Google, MeetUp, Microsoft, Oracle, and Twitter, among others.
