The Open Group is faced with challenges and opportunities regarding Open Source software. Foremost is the organization's responsibility to guide its
members in use of, and participation in, Open Source. Secondarily, as an organization we must catch up: we couldn't have known that Open Source would
be this successful, and it brings profound changes to our main areas of practice: Open Systems and Standards. We must now fully integrate Open Source
into our operation. If not, it's time to change the name of our organization.
