Read around the huge ad in the left column to find a story by IDG News Service previewing the O'Reilly Open Source Convention next week. Apparently Open Source needs some regrouping. "With its footprint in nearly every corner of the Internet
and computing industry, the collaborative development
model called open source that spawned Linux and the
Apache Web server is on the ropes, criticized publicly by
its foes as unworkable, weighed down by internal strife
and bruised by a dragging economy.
But the latest troubles for open source have not
stopped its supporters from forging ahead to try to
make the model viable for large businesses."
