Open software for opportunity

Author: JT Smith

Kelly McNeill writes "Linux's strength is not that it is an alternative operating system, but rather that it is a new way of developing and earning revenue with software. The open source software (OSS) business model has been proven time and time again to be as good if not better than closed source alternatives. One example of OSS's viability is found within the open source server software, Apache. Despite numerous commercial competitors, Apache manages to boast such impressive statistics as being run on 59 percent of all Web servers around the world."
