Eight great tips for converting to open source
Travelers on the road from proprietary to open source software won't be driving on an Interstate. Enterprise open source deployments are still uncommon enough that companies may have to plot a course along a "road less traveled." Dr. John Horn provided helpful "road signs" when he spoke recently at a Linux seminar sponsored by Source Code Corp. in Norwood, Mass. Horn is CEO of Kansas City, Mo.-based Interstate Software, which provides education to companies converting to MySQL and other open source applications, and is the only MySQL training center in North America. Horn is co-author of MySQL: Essential Skills from McGraw Hill.
