Europe takes a deeper look at Free/Libre and Open-Source Software
"The final report on Free/Libre and Open-Source Software (FLOSS) from the International Institute of Infonomics at the University of Maastricht, The Netherlands is being viewed as a "major research project" coming out of Europe. The report takes a detailed look at the reasons behind the growing use of free and open-source software. Commentators have already called this study perhaps the "first large-scale, rigorous study concerning any aspect of free software". It included interviews with thousands of developers and hundreds of businesses."
