Future Open Source Superstars

Author: JT Smith

This weekââ¬â¢s Open Source Business Conference was a strange meeting of Enterprise IT users, venture capitalists, and free software entrepreneurs. The opening keynote was delivered by Red Hatââ¬â¢s freshly minted CEO Jim Whitehurst who gave a very modest speech noting that while Red Hat has been a leading open source company they have not necessarily been an open source leader. Whitehurstââ¬â¢s presentation lacked anything especially insightful or noteworthy and he has the advantage of being the new guy so heââ¬â¢s off the hook for anything that might have happened before he took the job.
