Certified Open Source Stacks
I thought the whole point of Open Source that you can make it what you want? I just finished reading Neil McAllisters column A slim market for certified open source?. I have to agree with Neil and his assessment that certifying Open Source stacks may seem appropriate only for customers that dont really care about price. Which brings into question whether someone who does not care about price are consumers of Open Source technologies and applications in the first place.
