Open Source backers: No fear

Author: JT Smith

From a guest column at ZDNet by HP's Bruce Perens: "In a recent column, ZDNet News columnist Mary Jo Foley asked, "Open-source backers: Are you afraid?" Citing the recent rush of corporations such as IBM, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, and even Sun to open source, she wondered why open-source purists weren't afraid of being co-opted by big companies. Mary Jo, we planned for this to happen, and we're overjoyed that it has come about."
