Did Open Source Win?

  • While it's unfortunate that she still posits this as a "battle" there's some good information in her series. I think the commoditization of hardware has more to do with lowered costs vis-a-vis the cloud more so than the use of open-source, if we think of cloud on the Infrastructure (IaaS) and Platform (PaaS) aspects rather than the Software (SaaS) parts. Nonprofits just want to get things done efficiently and cost-effectively, sometimes it'll be proprietary sometimes it will not.
