While reading a discussion on IndicThreads titled Making money with open source, I came across a comment that referred to a site openflows.org and their experience at getting businesses to adopt open source.
On checking the site, I found a section there that I thought I should share. It has some points that can be used by anyone struggling to convince their bosses about the importance of open source and why they should be adopting it. Check out http://why.openflows.org/. The content links are located at the top of the page.
Although I did not see many Java references on the site, it’s good to see such service based businesses that totally rely on open source. What was different about openflows was that unlike the JBoss kind of open source servicing, these guys weren’t saying that they are the creators of the things they are servicing.
